Notes: The Dixie Lids from 1951 through 1953 show the picture area with a squared off bottom instead of a full circle. The 1953 set contains a line that says "Save Any 12 Dixie Movie Lids for a Large Picture of Me." These can be distinguished from the similar 1951 lids because the 1951 lids say "Colored" instead of "Large" in that line.

In 1953, Dixie also issued a set of 24 baseball player lids.
