Attendance Cards

Some related material that I haven’t been able to discover much about are these School Attendance Card Stamps. They are stamp sized and are perforated, thus presumably taken from a sheet, but are printed on card rather than paper.

The first batch I got are almost certainly British, and are mounted on what appears to be a blank page taken from a book. They were awarded for 10 attendances at Sunday School. The style of the illustrations may date these as 1900-1914. But I cannot help thinking that these may have been given out to the girls of the class, and that perhaps the boys had a more masculine theme for their cards.

This second batch are similar artifacts; perforated card, but this time originate from Germany - this first examples in the collection of anything from a non-English speaking country. The seller dated them 1900-1925, and this was based on the fact that they were collected by his grandmother. There are two different styles, but again three of them are quite ‘girly’. The bible quotes are:

I am the way and the truth and the life.
Behold and see he Lord (perhaps)
You are my father, my God, and the my salvation.
My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.
