LIFE IN AMERICATM - A series of 12 subjects

Issued for the Aetna Life Insurance Co. We believe these must have been issued in the 1950's or, possibly, the 1960's. Many, if not all, of these puzzles featured artwork by Henry Sutter, who also provided artwork for other Aetna Life puzzles, including ones in the "Americana Series" and the "Artistic Series", as well as some ROYALTM puzzles.
We believe these to be the 12 titles of the "Life in America Series":
Coasting
Sugaring Off
Skating
Angling
Trotting Race
Croquet
Regatta
Sea-Bathing
Bicycle Race
Birling
Barn Dance
