Year of Issue: Mid to late 1920s
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: 30
Card Size: 2 3/8" x 3 3/16"

Notes: Checklist incomplete. No official title on the cards, the translation of "Schauspielerinnen und Tanzerinnen" is "Actresses and Dancers". Quite permissive cards for the time, even by Weimar Republic standards. At least one of the cards shows nudity. No album was issued. Bonitas was taken over by Greiling in the late 1920s, and only this series and a few sports cards identical to the Greiling issues have been seen. A very rare series.

Thanks to Nick Bolton for help with this checklist.
