Dear Harry: My wife and I have always been regular buyers of E and EE bonds. Last month, her grandfather died, and we found that he, too, was a U.S. bond buyer. There were a number of EE and H bonds in his desk. There was also an E bond that was designated as a War Bond with a face value of $50 that was issued in 1944. We would like to cash in all of the bonds. How does she prove that she is her grandfather's only surviving relative? Does that old War Bond have any value?
