Presented is a 24-card 1940s E196 Necco Candies “Strange People of Many Lands” complete set. Produced for the firm's “Necco Candies” product line, these colorful collectibles showcase the style of dress of men and women from different cultures around the world. In Benjamin's reference book, this set was considered complete at 23 cards: card #6 -- Indo-China -- was never described. The more-recent Watson guide has E196 listed as a 24-card set. The mystery surrounding the "Indo-China" piece might not be solved anytime soon, but here's your chance to attain this release in its 24-card, complete set form. Presents mostly at the EX/MT to NM level (with some lesser) but technically grades lower due to the majority of the items having glue residue on their backs.
