Gaycon Birds, Butterflies & Moths British Butterflies 1963 British Butterflies 1963 25 - There is much to love about this butterfly set not least the fact that it also features the caterpillar and chrysalis of each butterfly, which are pictured in colour against a light blue background and the backs give basic information such as food, the type of area it likes and where it can be found. It was originally intended that a 2nd series of 25 cards would be issued making a series of 50 in total, as referred to on the card backs, but in fact no further series was issued. An album was also originally available to house these cards which was obtainable from the issuers for a 1/- postal order, as mentioned on the back. Included in this set is a Swallow Tail which is perhaps one of our most beautiful butterflies, the Speckled Wood butterfly who’s chrysalis looks a bit like a Cornish pasty, the Small White which is the enemy of all gardeners, the Silver-washed Fritillary which loves dog-violets and the Red Admiral which migrates over long distances. The cards are size 69 x 36mm

Gaycon Miscellaneous Trade Cards History of the Blue Lamp 1st Series 1961 History of the Blue Lamp 1st Series 1961 25 - Traditionally blue lamps hung outside British police stations and this set tells the story of the policing and the villains they dealt with beginning Ancient Druids and ending in the days of Queen Anne. The text on the back is written as if by the copper in popular police show Dixon of Dock Green and contains a copyright by Ted Willis Ltd who created the series. This looks at early ways of ensuring good behaviour from tything-men and shire-reeves of the Saxons, lawmakers like Alfred the Great, Norman trials by battle and ‘Frank-pledge’, trials by ordeal and early Sergeants of the Middle Ages, Tudor stocks and watchmen plus some of the villains like ‘Moll Cut-purse’, murdering London crooks known as ‘Mohocks’ and stagecoach robbers. A 2nd Series was also issued which continued the story. Cards size 67 x 36mm.

Gaycon Native North American Indians and Cowboys Red Indians 2nd Series 1960 Red Indians 2nd Series 1960 25 - Originally issued in 1958 by Kane Products this set (numbered 26 to 50) is the second in a series of fifty cards issued under the title Red Indians and contains colour depictions of native Americans and their way of life. Some cards cover general customs such as sun worship or war dance, whilst others are split into regions and give the chiefs, houses and life-styles of Eastern, South Western, Plains and North Western Tribes. The remainder of the cards cover interaction between natives and settlers including the story of Pocohontas and Cutler’s last stand. There are plenty of interesting facts on the reverse, for instance, we are told that whole villages of North-Western tribes would come together to hunt whales and the picture shows how brave this was as they tackle a huge whale with simple harpoons from wooden boats. A fascinating look at native life in North America with cards 67 x 35mm.
