Notes: Checklist Incomplete. An album was issued with this set to hold the A and B sets. A different album was issued to hold the C set and the album was called Cowboy 1. The cards from this set are made from thin glossy paper stock, not cardboard. From date research on the stars (especially the paired stars), this set was probably issued in about 1952.

Collector Ralf Wierz located an original bag used to sell these cards. Here's Ralf's report on the bag:

"I was able to buy some of the German woS series cards and one original paper bag where the cards were sold in. So the cards didn't come with cigarettes. I remember when I was at school in the 1970's these kind of paper bags with collector cards in it were sold at newspaper stands or kiosks. The woS were sold for 10 Pfennig per bag and 5 cards were in it. On the back is some advertising for Wissoll products, they sold Sweets, Chocolate Bars, Pralines and Cocoa."
