Very attractive and scarce sheet of ten ration coupons, 8" x 11 1/2" overall, issued by the fascist government of Spain under Francisco Franco, and each dated 1943. The recto of the sheet is decorated with a large Iron Cross with a swastika at center before a bundle of arrows, all over a shield bearing the colors of the Spanish flag, and surrounded by illustrations of Wehrmacht soldiers on the Eastern Front. The title "Espana" ("Spain") appears at top, with "Division Azul" at bottom. The sheet is perforated where the coupons can be separated, but remains intact, with slight toning and soiling to the corners, else very good. The Spanish "Blue Division" was an elite unit of volunteers that served with the German Wehrmacht on the Eastern Front, most notably at the Siege of Leningrad. They suffered 22,700 casualties of all types, out of their total strength of 47,000.
