I wrote up to #34 in this series back in 2015, time to start getting some posted!
A Three-for-one post, as these sets, while different, are also the same. Huh?
In 1940, 1941 and 1942, Wings Cigarettes issued four sets of trading cards that all used the same designs, and, I believe, some of the same illustrations with different card numbers.
In 1940, the original set was issued. Later in 1940, it was reissued as Series A. (I have none of the Series A cards). In 1941, a different checklist, but with the same design, was issued as Series B. In 1942. Series C was issued. All used the same design and featured a mixture of military and civilian aircraft.
Here are scans of each of the three series I have.
I have about a dozen combined cards from the sets, with the majority of cards in my collection being from the original 1940 release. They are small, slightly above half the size of a modern standard sized card, but wider than the tobacco standard.
There are other sets using the same design but different names. They do not yet appear in my collection.
