The T48 Turkey Red Butterfly Series is a 50 card set produced in 1910 and
inserted into 10-cigarette packs of Turkey Red Cigarettes.  These beautiful
cards portray species from around the world.  The cards are identified by the
their Latin names on the front and back, along with the location of their natural
habitat.  As noted on the card backs, species originate from North America,
South America, Europe, Japan, India and a single representative from
Madagascar.  The borders are gold, which makes them attractive, but
susceptible to chipping.  The cards measure 2" X 2 5/8". Enjoy.
