American Red Cross Purchase Coupon Book
with 60 coupons and purchased at a price of 60 French Francs.

American Red Cross Purchase Coupons
   At all American Red Cross Clubs in France and elsewhere on the Continent the prevailing charges will represent identically the same money value as it has been the case in Great Britain.  To express these prices, however, in Francs results in fractions of Francs for which no French currency is expected to exist.  Payments for purchase at A.R.C. Clubs on the continent will therefore be made by coupons instead of cash.
   Coupons will be on sale at all Clubs in books of 60 coupons at a cost of Fcs. 50, the equivalent of 5/- or approximately $1.00, and in single cards of 12 coupons at a cost of Fcs. 10, the equivalent of 1/- or approximately 20 cents.
   When making purchases present this book and the number of coupons called for will be detached.
   The 60 coupons in the Fcs. 50 book will purchase 50 doughnuts, or 30 cups of coffee, or 20 colas drinks, or any combination thereof, as well as other items.
   Price of all articles will be designated by number of coupons required to purchase.
