New Finds


The card on the left is an uncommon hybrid card between an earlier and later style. The first Embassy cards featuring the brand within the map of Australia date from 1959. They had no printed price, rounded corners, and no added cotton. Soon after (possibly the same or following year) they were changed to a copy of G. Herring’s cards with the added cotton. The corners were no longer rounded, and prices were printed on the cards, as seen on the card at the right. The hybrid card has the new added cotton, but still has rounded corners. As no price had been printed, a sticker had to be added. They were likely to be using up old cards as they shifted to the new.


These date from the mid 1960s.
