Chilena Polo H

Issuing Company: Cia Chilena de Tobaccos
Country of Issue: Chile
Year of Issue: 1936
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: 50
Card Size: 1 5/8" x 2 7/16"
Issued as insert with what product: Cigarettes

Notes: Blank-backed. Polo was a cigarette brand of Chilena. These cards have a tendency to curl left to right. Cards from this set have been seen in two ways - 1) high gloss, light grey shade or 2) dull finish with darker shade of grey.

Date info: I checked five of the pairings for stars on these cards on the Internet Movie Database. Four of these were English language films and were released in the USA in 1934 or 1935. One was a Spanish language film and was released in 1935. I'm placing a date of 1936 on this set since Chile probably got the films a little later than the USA after they were translated into Spanish. The actual date could be a year in either direction.
