Ever needed a way to say "Hello, local person! That massive crater I just made? Please ignore that and help me." in a variety of local languages but you failed the DLAB? Now you can! This set of Blood Chits covers that general statement in a much more diplomatic manner in dozens of languages. Think of it like a budget Rosetta Stone

Blood Chits became famous in the Second Sino-Japanese War when American Volunteer pilots carried notes that essentially said "We're on the same team. I don't speak your language. Help get me back and you will be rewarded." They've been adapted for almost every war since then.

This set includes 5 Blood Chits that should make sure you get helped out basically anywhere around the world. All of these are a little different in their messages to the reader and the translations language to language are a little inconsistent. If you want to see the actual differences, check out the photos. Some identify the bearer as an American, some identify the bearer as a Citizen of the United States, some ask for general protection, and one asks for protection from the communists specifically. The Russian sections on them are hilariously brief.

These are all originals and were stored in their boxes for literal decades, so the edges will show some wear and there may be folds on the corners. But these are all unused, and are great for framing. If you're framing them, you'll need a frame about 3' x 3'.
