Danmarks Billede Serie: "Dyrefabler 1-200"

Danmarks Billede Serie: "Dyrefabler 1-200"

1949? "Danmarks Billede Serie: "Dyrefabler 1-200."  39 cards out of a numbered set of 200.  1¾" x 2¾".  $5 from Allen Sweet, Watkins Glen, NY, through eBay, Nov., '12.

These cards represent a real curiosity.  Those in the first 90 numbers are identical with the same numbers in "Dandy Black Backs."  Those above #90 go their own way.  It is of course not always easy to ferret out fables from folktales.  Clear fables here seem to be #110 (#102 in the Dandy series and #115 (#107 in the Dandy series) -- both representing DS -- and #200 (OF, identical with #200 in the Dandy series).
