WW2 Edito-Service SA Cards

Collection consists of 2,967 cards

The Second World War card collection were released by Edito-Service cards in 1977 through mail subscription and have been out of print since 1978 or 1979 (the  subscriptions were available in 1978 and 1979 but all cards are Copyright 1977, Edito Service, S.A. Geneva Printed in Italy). 
 
The cards measure approximately 4 5/8 x 4 3/4 inches (12 x 12.5 cm) and
they are in English and in full colour (some images are naturally black and white). The back of each
card includes a great history of the person, weapon, vehicle or event that is depicted on the front.
 
These subscription cards were delivered to buyers by mail in "decks" sent every few weeks. The
buyer could then remit payment which would continue the subscription. These cards were never sold on the open market at the time of publishing.
