1960's Marx Lipton Tea (Famous Canadians)

The 36 Famous Canadians were produced in hard plastic and painted in Hong Kong by the Louis Marx Co. in circa 1960, exclusively for Thomas J. Lipton, Ltd., Toronto, Canada, to be used as tea premiums. They were issued as a single figure in a plastic bag with history card written in English on one side and French on the other side. Here I have figures of
 - Daumont De St. Lusson ((?)-1677), a military officer of New France and deputy of Jean Talon,
 - Laura Secord (1775 -1868), a Canadian heroine of the War of 1812 between the United States and the United Kingdom,
 - Lord Snydenham (1799 - 1841), the first Governor General of the united Province of Canada.
