This was one of the earliest sets issued. It was issued in The Netherlands and was probably not issued in Sweden. In its original issue, the cards were printed on standard cardboard stock.

I believe this set was reissued sometime later in France and/or Belgium in paper form. Uncut sheets appear with cards from 7 different sets on the same sheet. These sets were the "A" Set, the "Ab" Set, the "B" Set, the "C" Set, the "D" Set (name in script), the "E" Set, and the "F" Set.

The main version of these cards show the movie star name in script, but there is another printing of these cards that shows the movie star name in all caps in block lettering. The "name in caps" cards have slightly different dimensions, measuring about 1 13/16" x 2 1/2".
