This presentation includes a pair of strip card sets of this theme. Both sets originally circulated as 8-card perforated strips. Includes: 1936 R13-2 "American G-Men" (48) - Complete set of 48 cards, numbered #701-748.

When issued, this set circulated as eight card uncut perforated strips. Just a few cards show an uneven edge and may have been hand cut or were simply the end card of a strip. All others show a pair of perforated edges as issued. Grades 33% VG or slightly nicer, 67% PR to GD.
