Here’s the checklist for the Duke Transparencies set (ACC# N137). This is a tough set to find, probably because the cards themselves are very thin and easily destroyed. The thinness was on purpose as the cards were supposed to be held up to light to see a “transparent” effect (thus the set being called “Transparencies” by collectors). There’s little information on the cards, just the word “Honest” on the front. The cards showing girls have no captions so a brief description is given in the checklist. The backs are blank.
The set consists of 25 unnumbered cards. They were packed in the Honest Long Cut brand.
