Although this title appears in reel lists published by Sawyer's and a
production run was at least initiated, it may never have been publicly issued
owing to the 1957 Cuban revolution. John Saddy has offered specimens in his auctions
#99VM-1 (March 1999) and #00VM-2 (April 2000).
Known to have been issued in an S6b style envelope, unusual for a single reel, with "7" in the white oval where "21" normally appears for a 3-reel packet.
#2680 Monaco et Monte Carlo typeset (French issue)
This unusual reel, manufactured in France, may have been issued only with a Model E viewer, also of French manufacture. One specimen was offered by John Saddy in his Auction #99VM-2 (March/April 1999).
The numbering of this reel is sequential with those in packet B656.
#B4309 William Tell typeset
Although the number suggests it is somehow in series with the 3 reels in the B430 William Tell packet, the provenance of this reel is unknown. The 7 scenes all appear in the reels of the B430 S4 variant, but no reel from that set is identical to B4309. One specimen was offered by John Saddy in his Auction #96VM-1.
#CBS-1/CBS-2 NASA's Apollo Project, Moon Landing 1969 typeset (GAF)
These two reels consist of genuine images from the Apollo 11 lunar mission, all of which are also found in the 3-reel packet B663, Apollo Moon Landing.
Part of a 1957 giveaway distributed by View-Master dealers in a greeting-card size envelope which included an 8-page brochure The Little Book of Favorite Gifts of View-Master Products, an information reply card, and a letter from Sawyer's.
While FT-31B is known as a Belgian issue, FT-31A and FT-31C reels of Belgian manufacture are not yet confirmed. Moreover, the reel(s) may have been issued singly, as part of a 3-reel packet of Belgian origin, or both.
Alpine Wild Flowers of the Western United States, Howard R. Stagner
According to collector/View-Master documentarian Mary Ann Sell, three versions
of the Wildflower book were issued. The first was a clothbound volume about
the size of a personal checkbook, brown with gold lettering, and accompanied by
the hand-lettered variants of the Wildflower reels. The second versions were
small clothbound books about the size lengthwise of the first version but much
fatter; these were issued in many colors including green, blue, orange, yellow,
turquoise, or other colors and (like the Mushroom books) red leatherette. The
third version was in a spiral bound format, made of green leatherette with a
full color dust jacket.
