This is a pair of vintage Red & Blue Point Ration Tokens.

The Office of Price Administration established to combat price gauging began rationing in 1942. Items that were rationed include canned goods, meats, sugar, coffee, tires, gas and more. The Office of Price Administration used stamps, coins and chits for rationing. OPA coins (commonly called OPAs) were used for change for food. These points were used by retailers to give change back for food bought with ration stamps. Red points for meats and fats; Blue points were used for processed foods.
