Type 1 design, but wider than usual: two rectangles are side by side,
not quite centered in the chit. The left
rectangle is about 38 mm wide, and the right rectangle is about 11 mm wide.
The rectangles are about 19 mm high. In the left rectangle, there is a block
of reversed colors at the top (the block is dark ink and the letters are the
same color as the field of the chit). The block has three slashes "\\\" then
says "NONCOMMISSIONED" and "OFFICERS' CLUB" in two lines, and ends with another
three slashes "///". Below the block is a small drawing of an airplane. To
the right of the airplane it says "A.P.O. 825".
On the bottom left under the airplane in small
letters in three lines it says "NOT GOOD", "IF", "DETACHED". Unlike many
other chits, the "NOT GOOD IF DETACHED" is not in italics.
On the bottom right is the serial number; "19958B" in the example above.
The right rectangle has a smaller rectangle just inside it. It has a large
"5" filling up most of the rectangle. Underneath the denomination it says
"CENTS" in a block with reversed colors (the block is dark ink, and the letters
are the same color as the field of the chit).
For population count, known specimens are as follows:
The Plowman specimen came from a scrapt book kept by a serviceman during
World War II, which was broken up and sold piece by piece on ebay.
