From at least the early 1940’s until the program ended on June 30, 1970, savings stamps were acquired from post offices and sold in schools to students. Albums and patriotic materials were made available to schools to promote the program. A student could buy a $25 (face amount)Series E savings bond with as little as $18.75 in savings stamps. Stamps were non-interest bearing and unregistered.
