Bingham: Next! 1945. Gritting his teeth and setting his jaw, a Marine braces himself for battle, in this case the invasion of the Japanese home islands. Had it been necessary, it would have been a virtual Gotterdamerung, the apocalyptic end to the ironically named but savagely fought Pacific War. The 6th War loan raised a staggering $21.5 billion, part of it earmarked for the planned campaign. Six million people sold bonds in 1944, mostly door-to-door. Series E, with its smaller $25 denomination, was introduced during the drive making bonds more affordable. 28×20 near mint, conservation backed.
