Notes: Checklist incomplete. Blank-backed. The first card I saw from this set was card #28 Thomas Meighan, so that is the name of the set for now.

The photos from this set were taken from xerox copies, so the actual coloring of these cards will look different from the scans.

Collector Larry Tabone Jr. reports that he has a group of 15 of these cards that were found in a plain envelope with writing on it that said "LUNA PARK, Coney Island 1919 1 cent movie star cards."

Date info: Card #78, titled Mary and Doug, shows a picture of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. The Mary Pickford Foundation website shows a copy of that same picture, which they date to 1920 and place at Pickfair, the home of Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford after they were married in March of 1920. That card would seem to date the set to 1920 or later. Mary Maurice died in 1918. This set was probably issued in 1920 or 1921. I'm placing a 1920 date on the set.

Thanks to Bob Richardson, Larry Tabone Jr., and Paul Falzon for help with this checklist.
