Nestle Film Stars (Uruguay-B&W)

Issuing Company: Nestle
Country of Issue: Uruguay
Year of Issue: 1929
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size:
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolates

Notes: Checklist Incomplete. This set appears to be the related to the Nestle Film Stars (Argentina-B&W). Not enough cards studied to know the exact relationship.

There are at least five different Nestle Film Stars (Uruguay-B&W) sets as follows:

The A, B, and E sets have the set letter on the front and back, while the C set has the set letter on the back only. I haven't seen a set with the letter D, so it is possible that there may be a D set also.

Each of the sets contains 50 cards.

Date info: Movies listed on cards from the C and E set were released in 1928, so this set must have been issued around that time. I'm placing a date of 1929 on this set as Uruguay probably got the films a little later.

Thanks to Mike Davies for help with this checklist.
