Notes: Checklist Incomplete. The backs state that there are 5 cards from each of 24 different films, for a total of 120 cards in the set. For the card numbering, each film apparently had a letter assigned to it, followed by a dash, then a number 1 to 5. I checked the dates for the two movies I've seen so far on these cards and both were released in 1923, so I am placing a 1923 date on this set.

The backs also note that customers were able to mail in for a large, hand-colored picture of the star of a particular movie. I haven't seen one of these large pictures. If anyone has one, email me a scan so it can be included on the site for all to see.
