Notes: Checklist incomplete. This set was issued with advertising for Nuria, Elixir, and Solsona on the backs and probably others as well.

There are some other fancy frame sets issued in Spain with advertising from other brands on the backs. I originally thought they were all the same set, since many sets from Spain share different back advertising. But there appear to be different fancy frame sets from different issuers. The Nuria Fancy Frame set appears to be different from the Juncosa Fancy Frame set. There also some other Fancy Frame cards with different advertisers. I believe the key to identifying which fancy frame set goes where is with the exact fancy frame pattern used for a particular series. Every series seems to use a different fancy frame, but all the frames for a particular series are the same. If two different brands use the same frame, they seem to be the same set, but if the frames are different, they are different sets. Kind of confusing, but that seems to be the way these are organized. So, for example, the Serie G frame for Juncosa is different from the Serie G frame for Nuria, so those are different sets. The Serie G frame for Nuria and Elixir is the same, so those are the same sets.
