Is there a place with truly comprehensive info on this set? I find dribs and drabs but is there one place to see everything? I know it's a tough set for the uninitiated, but sometimes I have no choice but to learn quickly! 

My main questions are - I see references to the rare 5 and scarce 7 and I get that they're probably equal (likely from the same sheet) but I can't find WHICH cards they are!

Also with variations. I have low numbers with yellow ampersand and no copyrights.

Are all the high numbers crazy rare?

and so on.

Would be easier, I think, to point me in a direction than to try and answer all my questions! I have searched on here and found bits and pieces but nothing comprehensive.

I picked up a large group of the cards a couple of years ago & had no knowledge of the set at that point. I used the gallery & the link below to get to grips with the set as best I could. Found both very useful. There are other members here with a lot of knowledge on the set - I think Mark Finn is one of those. Maybe they'll chime in.

The link below has a checklist in post #5 with the print group of each card after it. Below the checklist it has a description of each print group.

Tradingcarddb might have everything it was just hard to find it all, and a little confusing, but I think I've got it now.

Thanks!

Mark Finn has enough knowledge about the nuances of this set (and its global variations) to issue a book about it. If he did, I would absolutely buy a copy.

I'm with you. As an auctioneer it's impossible to know everything reference material like that is awesome!

CRAP! Can't find anything about this. I have a card #26 that has a back that's upside down when compared to all the others. Not a strip card either. Anyone?

I have been working on a "G Men Booklet" for awhile to document all of the worldwide issued cards, based on Gum, Inc.'s 1936-1937 US release of R60 G Men and Heroes of the Law:

Cover Page:

Every card has an image of the different fronts & backs (where appropriate) that are in the <US> Master Set.

Sample Page (Card # 139):

The entire (US released cards) booklet is about 12.4 MB (PDF format).

If interested, please message me with your email address & I can send a draft copy. Comments/corrections/additions are welcomed.
