MILITARY PAYMENT CERTIFICATE
(MPC)


MPC was used to pay overseas servicemen when they were in combat areas and other areas where the flow of American money should be slowed or stopped from getting into the black market. There were many series of MPC, listed below.  I continue to work on them and ask your help if you have any scans that I do not have.
