NESTLE FILM STARS (ARGENTINA-B&W)

Issuing Company: Nestle Ltd.
Country of Issue: Argentina
Year of Issue:
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: Two series of 50 cards each
Card Size:
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolates

Notes: Checklist incomplete. Four different cards of the same number exist, suggesting at least 4 series were issued plus the series with a "B" prefix before the number.

Two back types seen - ‘Lavalle 130 Buenos Aires’ and ‘Parana 640 Buenos Aires’. It is unclear whether different back types denote different series. For example three of the cards numbered 3 have ‘Lavalle 130’ printed on the back, the other ‘Parana 640’.

This set appears to be the same as the Nestle Film Stars (Uruguay-B&W) set with a different back.

Thanks to Richard Minns and David York for help with this checklist.
