Up for sale is a 1951 dated XM-51-1 European theater blood chit. I have a handful of them. They are unissued and in the 46xxx range.

Primarily issued to aircrews, it says in 13 languages:
"I AM AN AMERICAN. I DO NOT SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE, MISFORTUNE FORCES ME TO SEEK YOUR ASSISTANCE IN OBTAINING FOOD, SHELTER AND PROTECTION. PLEASE TAKE ME TO SOMEONE WHO WILL PROVIDE FOR MY SAFETY AND SEE THAT I AM RETURNED TO MY PEOPLE. I WILL DO MY BEST TO SEE THAT NO HARM COMES TO YOU. MY goverment WILL REWARD YOU."

Each does have a slight water stain that is about half the width form the French language at a diagonal down to the serial number but is not terribly noticable.

I am asking $25 each.
