==Series information==
The cards issued have a similar design as used on the [[EFA Postcards]] and many [[Arms and Flags (Kraepelien)|Dutch trade card series]]. Those series also show the flags of the countries, the James' cards only the coat of arms. Murray describes the cards as medium sized (80x52 mm), but the cards I know about are standard size (68x40 mm).
