WWII Ration Tickets

I found these among some old family papers. They are WWII gas ration tickets issued to my great-great grandfather Joseph M. Talbott of South Boston, VA. I have never seen actual ration coupons before. This particular set was valid on 23 Apr 1945 and marked as “Non Highway”. I take that to mean these were most likely for his farming equipment.
What an interesting find and a good history lesson for my children.
