Peerless Series C Set

Issuing Company: Peerless
Country of Issue: USA
Year of Issue: 1932
Color/B&W: B&W with pinkish background and border
Number of Cards in Set: 200 different fronts
Card Size: 1 1/8" x 2 3/8"
Issued as insert with what product: Came out of coin-operated weight machines

Notes: These cards can be identified by the Series C on the back. They contain the following characteristics - they are in black and white with a pastel pinkish-grey background and pinkish-white border. Identifying text is written in diagonal script. On the back, these cards contain a fortune on one side, the name of the issuer on the other, and a space for a weight printout in the middle. There is a copyright line on the back that starts with Pat. No. 1546553. Cards from this set are numbered.

There are 200 different fronts for this set, but the back numbering is very wacky. Multiple fronts have been seen for most numbers and it is likely that all the fronts can be found with 2 or more numbers on the back. The backs do not have the name of the movie star, so there is nothing on the back linking a particular number to a particular star. The alphabetical checklist below is complete, but it is likely that the numerical checklist is incomplete.

Exact year of issue not known. The dates I've seen so far in the weight printout range from 1932 to 1934, so these cards must have been issued in 1932 or earlier.

Thanks to Pat Chiappetta, Mike Raboin, David York, Susan Binder, Don Bradley, and Keven Oates for help with this checklist. Special thanks to Pat Chiappetta for supplying most of the scans of this set and for clarifying that there are 200 fronts for this set.
