Notes: Checklist Incomplete. These cards can be identified by the Series A written on the front. On the back, these cards contain a fortune on one side, the name of a store on the other, and a space for a weight printout in the middle. These have been seen with advertising backs for the following companies:

Walgreen Drug Stores

Exact year of issue not known. I have only seen one of these cards so far, and it contained a date of 1930 in the weight printout, so these cards must have been issued in 1930 or earlier.

These brown tinted cards say "Series A." There is another Peerless set that is green-tinted that says "A SERIES." I haven't seen enough of these to determine yet whether these are the same set or whether these are different sets.
