Additional Information: 

The Cottage definitive Callcard was first produced in 1991 and was still in production by the end of 1995. As a result many different variations of the Cottage Callcard exist. Gemplus produced many different print runs with different chipsets, addresses printed on the back, Innovatron/Moreno logo present or absent etc. While many variations do exist, only some of those variations are shown on IrishCallcards.net. This example above shows a Cottage Callcard with a Gemplus chipset.

Notice that the Gemplus card has a large blue arrow container surrounding the chip? This design choice is unique to the Gemplus Cottage Callcard and was not used on any other Callcard.

Some early Cottage Callcards never came wrapped.
