Adelaide, Government Printer ('Issued by authority of the Minister for Trade and Customs and the Commonwealth Rationing Commission'), .
Tabloid (approximately 380 × 255 mm), printed recto and verso; a fine copy.
A dotted line is printed across the middle of one side, where the sheet was apparently intended to be cut in half. The top half forms an oblong double-sided leaflet, 'The Black Market is the Traitor's Market'. The bottom half is designed to be folded to form a four-page octavo leaflet, 'Coupons or Chaos'. The publication date is derived from internal evidence, not least the date on the facsimile registration slip (15 June 1943, made out to John Citizen, Kokoda Road, Melbourne).
