Peerless Pat No. 1546553 Set

Issuing Company: Peerless
Country of Issue: USA
Year of Issue: 1934
Color/B&W: B&W with pinkish background and border
Number of Cards in Set: 200 (unnumbered)
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 contain the following characteristics - they are in black and white with a pastel pinkish-grey background and pinkish-white border. I have also seen these in more of a yellowish cream color. 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. There is no series number. There are two thick lines in the middle surrounding the weight reading.

These were also issued by the Canadian Rhodes Mfg. Co. of Canada. On the Canadian Rhodes cards, there is no Peerless copyright line.

Special thanks to Terry Wiskowski for helping with this checklist. Terry found an original box of 200 of these cards, but it was missing a few cards. From his box, it looks like this set is complete at 200 cards. Thanks to Terry, this checklist doubled from the previous listing. Thanks also to Pat Chiappetta for help with this checklist and for hunting down the elusive last card needed to complete this checklist. Thanks also to Brian Horne, Amit Benyovits, and David York for help with this checklist.

Exact year of issue not known. All of the cards I have seen contain 1934 or 1935 dates in the weight printout, so these cards must have been issued in 1934 or earlier.
