|The picture shows all (10) Old Lowney's Candy Advertising Premium Train Trading Cards in this lot. One of the cards is flipped over to show the back design. These cards are very difficult cards to find. They are from a set of (35) cards. A complete set would consist of (5) trains with an engine and six cars per train.|
They were used as premiums from the Walter M. Lowney Company but I am not sure of the exact year. They are believed to be from some time in the early 1900's. Each of the cards are numbered and if a complete set was sent you would receive a souvenir package of Lowneys Chocolates.
This lot contains cards from the same train. The backs have a short description of each train. The cards are numbers here are #2, #2, #2, #3, #4, #5, #5, #5, #6, & #7. The name of this train is:
CALAIS - MEDITERRANEE EXPRESS
Each of the cards measure about 3-1/2" x 1-1/8". They appear to have varying amounts of creasing and/or wear as pictured.
