Sheet No.75: A pair of parallel vertical images—one of Don Quixote standing on a dragon, the other of a horse’s head, knight’s helm, calavera, a smiling face, and a feral donkey—each divided across five perforated coupons. Verso features coupons redeemable for half a loaf of bread in Carrión de los Condes (Palencia), 1936.
Coupons for "vale por 1 pan" (5), "vale por 1/2 pan" (5)
The ration coupons were likely made during the 1970s and bear no resemblance to any surviving examples of real or official ration coupons printed and issued during the Spanish Civil War.

Recto: Image related to Don Quixote. Verso: perforated and divided into ten small ration coupons.
Two coarsely done illustrations within simple linear frames. In the left a standing Don Quixote stands on a miniature dragon, with a cat(lion?) in the upper right corner, and a large bird's head on the right side. In the right are a number of heads with ragged edges including a sleeping man, horse and donkey.
