Overview


The R66 “Heroes of Pearl Harbor” is a package design set that was most likely issued in 1942 by the Candyland Company of Brooklyn, New York. There were two “Heroes ” on each candy-box. When properly cut from the candy-box, the cards measure 1⅞×3 inches. There are currently eight known titles in the set. This would imply that only four complete candy-boxes were associated with the collection. However, we've yet been able to confirm this assumption. The blank-Backed cards are red and blue with some white accents, and are not numbered. The cards were machine “scored ” on the left and right edges and have “nubs ” to facilitate easy removal from the candy-box. The American Card Catalog reference number is R66.
