Rulers, Coats of Arms, and Flags

Notes: The tri-fold version has larger cards in folding-triptych format, with 
advertising text and a checklist on backs. The single-card version has blank backs 
and excludes the unexpected Niagara card, which might be considered a "pack-
nserted promo" in 21st-Century terms. American Card Catalog reference is N126. 
Scans are posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.
