"Number Only"


It has been noted that a number of "F S" cards with this very simple back appeared in about 1913/4, together with other cards in the "F S" style - and many more by other artists. The idea of the following thumb collection is to try and map out the reference number ranges which might be "F S" related cards.



There are two main families of back involved
