E96 Philadelphia Caramel (Issued circa. 1910)

Issued by the Philadelphia Caramel Co. this set of 30 cards is really a second series, the first series being the E95 set. Following the style set in the E95 set, they are not numbered on the front but are assigned numbers on the back. The numbering does not start with #26 but they do state on the back "Previous Series 25, making total Issue 55 cards." This is the only instance where 2 caramel sets are advertised as being a series.

More then a few collectors have found the Kling, Tinker and Baker cards harder to find then other cards in the set. I have found Kling and Tinker to be the most difficult.
