Exhibit card expert Adam Warshaw provides more information about this set as follows:

These cards are cuts from Exhibit 4 on 1 cards or strip cards. The stock is the tell. If the stock is thick they are cut 4 on 1s but if the stock is thin and finished on both sides, they are strips. The art from the cards was reused for strips (very tough). When these cards were issued in strip version, they were issued in horizontal strips of ten. There are related boxing 4 on 1s and boxing strips. Pictures provided when you click the image above.

Date info: June Marlowe made her first movies in 1924 and Metro studio last used that name in 1924 before becoming MGM, so I am putting a 1924 date on this set.

Thanks to Adam Warshaw and Ron Strader for helping with this checklist.
