National Chicle Secret Service Flashes (ACC# R125)

For more information on the National Chicle company and it’s issues, check out NationalChicle.com

The National Chicle Secret Service Flashes set (ACC# R125) was issued in 1935 and is considered quite rare. These cards are numbered with 24 cards total in this set. I’m not including an “official” checklist since each card is just labeled as “Flash No. x” from 1 to 24.

The “flashes” in this set were issued in packs of Secret Service Gum and depict the adventures of Ace Hunter and his sidekick Tom Dean. The reverse of these cards had a secret message that could be read when the flash was wet (probably destroying countless of these in the process).

The cards measure roughly 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 (inches) and have been seen on both the graytone and pink paper.
