Sheet No.71: A pair of illustrations, the top depicting Don Quijote astride Rocinante, the bottom featuring Sancho astride Dapple. Verso features coupons redeemable for a single meal for company workers at Forjas de Alcalá, a factory responsible for repairing and making trains. Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), 1944.
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 twelve small ration coupons.
