A near set (185 of 200 cards) is presented. This extensive release of diminutive, 1-1/8" x 2-1/8" photo cards delivered pictures of America's most prominent movie stars with every visit to the penny scale at the local dime store. Unlike the weight machine series of the 1940s and 1950s, these older cards were produced in relatively limited quantities and are seldom offered in meaningful groups. Highlights include #'s 5 Joan Crawford, 23 Loretta Young, 31 Wheezer/Rascals, 67 Farina/Rascals, 81 John Barrymore, 83 Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., 87 Norman Chaney/Rascals, 93 Buster Keaton, 104 Will Rogers (PR), 109 Clara Bow, 110 Rudy Vallee, 129 Al Jolson, 146 Johnny Mack Brown, 166 Gary Cooper, 171 Fay Wray, 177 Mary Ann Jackson/Rascals, 186 Charlie Chaplin and 187 Jackie Cooper/Rascals. Condition is generally VG/EX to EX throughout (some nicer and a few lesser). Missing #'s 9, 33, 47, 58, 73, 80, 86, 105, 116, 137, 138, 145, 179, 181 and 197 for completion.
