Notes: Checklist incomplete. The checklists here are for multiple sets all issused by Pidan. These sets were titled Serie A through Serie Z and they all appeared to have 15 cards per set. The only ones I've seen are from Serie R and Serie Z, so I am assuming the other series were issued and that they each had 15 cards, though this may prove to be incorrect.

The Serie Z card I've seen has perforation marks at the top and bottom. It also contains a stamped date of May 1934 on the back, so 1934 appears to be the year of issue of this series. Since this is Serie Z, it is likely that Serie A-Y were issued earlier.

The Serie Z card does not mention Pidan on the back, but appears to have been issued as a ticket for entrance to a museum. So it appears these cards were issued by Pidan with their chocolates and also with other products.
