Interesting Comparison

Take a look at the two cards below...

The first is Nickel Tour #1498 and the second is #1507. These images must have been taken within minutes of each other as the backgrounds are almost identical; the only real difference between the two are the guests on the drawbridge in the first image.

3D Cards

Have you seen these? The first card is Nickel Tour #0619, described as Cinderella and Witch; but we all know there was no witch in Cinderella. I guess the long pointed blue hat made the Fairy Godmother look like one.

The next card is Nickel Tour #0621, Sleeping Beauty and Prince Phillip.

The Nickel Tour has no image of these so it was a real treat to come upon these cards. Along with them was a card not shown nor mentioned in The Nickel Tour and is described as Aladdin and Genie.

All three were printed in Japan by the W.C. Jones Publishing Company in the mid 60s. Enjoy!
