|The picture shows all (16) Old PATTERSON CANDY COMPANY Advertising Premium Bird Cards in this lot. Please note that these cards are in poor condition with overall wear and creasing. They are old, each different, and thought scarce enough to list here. If you collect old premium trading cards these examples are better than none at all.|
A scan was not done of a back, but on the back is information on each bird in English and French. These cards are from Canada. By cutting off the bottom coupon number on the back, and mailing them, you will (back then) receive either a 1 pound box of "PRIVATE STOCK" Chocolates or a 290 page book "BIRDS OF EASTERN CANADA". Four of the 16 here have the numbers cut off.
Each card has an image of a male and a female of a bird species as well as an image of their egg. These cards are part of a set of (48) cards. The numbers included here are as follows:
#1, #3, #6, #11, #14, #15, #18, #19,
#21, #22, #23, #24, #25, #33, #45, & #48
The uncut cards each measure 2-1/16" x 5-1/4".
