Changeable Gentlemen
An early set, where all the cards were numbered on production (Hence this set contains the characters as it was made)

Inner label, lists characters including "Mr Pitt, Mr Fox, Nelson, Bonaparte &cc, &cc" with original lab. Each set was made up of 28 heads, noses and shoulders making 21958 possible different combinations
We believe that this game was sold over a period of time (as many games were) and kept up-to-date by replacing characters, so perhaps the numbers were removed to make this easier.
We have seen about 60 different heads/noses/bodies, so obviously there were many variations of this game

Changeable Gentlemen - Complete / Cards - very good / Box - good, small chip to lid, which has a military design with original label.

Insured Postage Free
