Default Vet's US Army Issued Bible, 1941

Hello all, I'm hoping a US collector can tell me the possible value of this US New Testament bible. It is dated March 6, 1941.

Thanks in advance!

I agree. I have sold a number of different types on eBay. Catholic type a little harder to find. Big prize is the "bullet proof" Bible with metal cover.

Here's a few of the typical Bibles, prayer books, etc. available to servicemen and women in WWII. They would be given out by Chaplains or presented by family members (usually the mother). Typically there is a place in the front for the owner's name and address and a message from President Roosevelt. Note the "bulletproof" Bible at the top with a metal cover, to be carried in the breast pocket for a little added protection.



Here are some similar Jewish items. The prayer book opens to the right and is in English and Hebrew.
