Just Desserts (sp)

While we're on the subject, allow me to display two more recent acquisitions. They were purchased over Labor Day Weekend at "The Great American Stamp Expo"--for a mere $.50 each! Most of the merchandise on hand at the Expo was primarily of interest to the philatelically-inclined, but these examples were sans postage. Both items required 1¢ postage, so TSG's best guess is that they were originally in circulation sometime during the late 40s to mid-50s.

I note that these cards have numbers on their face (in addition to a short descriptive squib) - were they possibly part of a series? "Collect them all!" or something like that?

I'm not sure if they were numbered to that end. My attempt to find out more about these items came to a grinding halt when one of the websites I came across proved to be infected with malware.
