Notes: Checklist Incomplete. Blank backed.

Amit Benyovits makes a few comments on this set. Within the sets there is variation in paper stock as well as from set to set. Some sets have blank backs while others have writing on the back. What i found interesting is that A/V card #480 has a mirror image card in the V/A set..only difference is writing is on the right of the picture whereas in the V/A set it's on the left:) Serie VII is the only series with a printed back.

Date info: In Serie I, there is a card of the Estonian Beauty Queen for 1931, so that series was probably issued in around 1932 or later. In Serie V/A, there is a card from a late 1933 film, so that series was probably issued in about 1934.

Thanks to Amit Benyovits, Richard Kirby, Greg Graetz, Thomas Gladysz, and Richard Minns for help with this checklist.
