Vp, vd (including 1823, 1869, 1873, 1875). Sizes range from 3 1/2 x 2 to 7 x 8 1/2. Some letterpress, some lithographed; some multi-colored, some in a single color or black. Some are unused; but some are filled in by teachers. An interesting pair are the ones for Nellie and Emeline Fox, given for a week of good attendance & deportment. Printed two years apart, the wording is identical but the graphic design is entirely different. Good to very good condition. Item #8501
