Have a few of these and not sure if these are from the back of Jello pr Post cereal. I know earlier Post cards had a red oval saying Post on the cards. If anyone is sure which these are please post the answer. Thanks.

They both printed identical cards, here is some quick info.
The easiest way to differentiate the 1963 Jell-O cards from the nearly identical Post cards is by the red line dividing the stats. On the Jell-O cards the line is shorter and ends close to the stats whereas on the Post cards the line extends almost to the card borders. I think the cards you've pictured are Post because the stat line extends well beyond the stars above the stats. If they were Jell-O cards, I think the red line would end closer, almost even with the stars.

Also the print is smaller on the Jell-O cards and the cards themselves are a bit smaller. The Jell-O cards measure 3-3/8" X 2-1/2", the Post cards are 3-1/2" X 2-1/2". A very slight difference.
