    Description

    1920's "V" Cowan's Chocolates Card Collection (11) Plus Wrapper. Every card has the bottom portion coupon intact. Before the Internet, obtaining Canadian or European cards was very challenging and time consuming effort for US collectors looking to add these very colorful and well-produced cards to their collections. From the 1920's we offer an 11-card gallery of cards sponsored by Cowan's Chocolates from various releases. Each 5-1/4x2-1/4" card features a colorful illustration with the typical English and French language copy on the reverse. Includes: V6 Bird Series (1) - #24 Screech Owl (VG-); V9 Canadian Birds (2) - #'s Barn Swallow (VG) and Red-Headed Woodpecker (GD-); V10 Canadian Fish (1) - #12 Lake Catfish (VG); V12a Chicken Cards (5) - #'s 3 Silver Gray Dorkings, 14 Black Polish, 15 Black Spanish, 21 White Orpingtons and 22 Light Brahmas. Grades GD with one lesser, one nicer; V20 Wild Flowers of Canada (2) - #'s 2 Golden Rod (EX) and 5 Turk's Cap Lily (VG/EX) plus a vintage paper wrapper with metallic gold and embossing decoration. Reads "Cowan's Royal Milk Chocolate. This wrapper is large enough to house the cards and we are offering as a bonus item. We cannot guarantee any card circulated in this wrapper. One tear and some soling, presents good.
