F. S. Comic Series

 
 

The "F. S. Comic Series" cards were all signed "F S". and share the same back but there are three variants which differ by what appears along the left edge:

  1. No Publisher or series

  2. F S Comic Series

  3. London View Co Ltd  F S Comic Series

It seems that they were printed in mid 1907, and while more postal dates are needed it is possible that some were issued in 1907 and other may have been sold as bankruptcy stock in 1909.

Only one set definitely reprinted (unsigned).
