1944 Disney War Bond Certificate

A US government-issued paper certificate from 1944, it would have been given out with the purchase of a War Bond for a child. Measures 7.875" x 10". The Seven Dwarfs are featured prominently along the top, with other Disney characters filling in the rest of the border. This one comes from the Rick Payne Collection. One of his earliest Disney acquisitions, Rick has had it hanging in his home since 1969!

A similar certificate was created during the Korean conflict featuring Al Capp's Shmoos.
