GB reprint card sets
These are reprints of the blue back orignals and differ in that they are printed in black on the back of the cards. It is likely that some of the original black back sets were also reprinted, but is it impossible to distinguish these from the original printings.

USA card sets
Please note that this listing reflects the separate US printings only. They differ to Canadian sets in that with the exception of CU2 (Black Back) they are printed in blue on the text sides, whilst they all show the New York address. Other Canadian sets were also issued in the US but were identical to those issued in Canada.
