Just received. This is a Type 1, distinctive from Type 2 by the bold Neilson's font on back and scarcer too. Basically it's a Canadian version of a 1922 American Caramel E120. Probably my favorite pre-war set but difficult and costly to collect Type 1 as a whole. This is only my second Type 1 and got it for a decent price.

Very nice. If it were mine, I'd bust it out of that plastic and put it in a nine card binder page with my other Collins cards. But that's just me. Smile

Thanks for looking. This is my first vintage Collins and yeah that holder is pretty large. You have a few vintage Collins?

I do but nothing from his playing days. I have ten different cards of his from the 1960s - 1970s.
