Reprint card set
A reprint set was issued in 1973. The text printing on the back of the cards is black.
Error cards
Cards 3, 4, 23 and 24 have well known error varieties. In the first example the text for cards 3 and 4 has been reversed, so that the picture for card 3 appears with the text for card 4 and vice-versa. Cards 23 and 24 have the same reversal of text so that card 23 appears with the picture for card 24 and vice-versa.
An album was issued for this set, with the price of 6d. on the front.
Album variations
A reprint album without the price was also issued.
A wallchart was issued for this set. In addition a second, smaller, 'compact' sized wallchart is also believed to have been issued, but this cannot be verified.
