Lloyd Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Tricks and Puzzles 1935 Tricks and Puzzles 1935 25 - This set of tricks and puzzles is a puzzle in itself as the new issues editor reviewing these for our magazine 1938 pointed out when he commented that it was probably intended for export as he couldn’t find it was ever issued in this country. If it was intended for export however, it seems strange the card backs say “it is hoped to run several big prize picture puzzle competitions for smokers of ‘Blue Lagoon’ and ‘Bondman’ cigarettes”. The mystery doesn’t stop there as these date from 1935 but were not reviewed until 1938 and bear the “Richard Lloyd & Sons, Clerkenwell Road, London EC1” address which might imply a date prior to 1932 when Lloyds became part of Copes. The cards themselves picture black and white puzzles with instructions on the front and explanations on the reverse. These include a trick with burning matches, finding a marked shilling, the counting squares puzzle and the jar in a bottle trick. A fascinating set with cards size 68 x 36mm

International Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Gentlemen! The King! (black back) 1937 Gentlemen! The King! (black back) 1937 100 - Although issued during coronation year 1937, this set was prepared in 1935 because “The King” referred to is George V and not his successor and indeed on the card backs we are told that “it can be inserted into a pictorial biography of H.M. King George V, particulars of which are enclosed in each packet”. It is unusual in being of two different sizes, with sixty standard size and forty large and it is on art paper rather than cardboard. The colour pictures take us from the King’s early childhood in 1866, through his public appearances and ends with his radio broadcast to the Empire broadcast in May 1935 as part of his Jubilee celebrations. Sadly he was to die just seven months later in January 1936. Rather prophetically the card featuring his second son the Duke of York, who at that time was not expected to be King, describes him as “the father of the young lady who may one day sit upon the throne of England” and of course she did. These cards were also issued with the text on the back in blue and provide a fascinating glimpse into the life of this hardworking monarch. The standard size cards are 67 x 39mm and the large cards are 76 x 58mm.
