In the 20+ plus years of collecting, I have never seen one of these cards.  I would doubt their existence except there are a couple of published resources including the Catalogue of Trade Card Issues by The London Cigarette Card Company, Ltd (1999 Edition, page 29) that contain this set and the associated first series set.  
 
In 2022, a seller on eBay listed an uncut ‘Charter Tea Prehistoric Animals’ sheet but the sheet has blank backs.  When I asked if there was any proof that the sheet was not from the 1962 Coopers & Co. Stores Ltd. Prehistoric Animals sets or the 1966 Sunblest Tea Prehistoric Animals sets, both of which share the same images as the Charter Tea set, the seller could not confirm the sheet’s origin.  
 
The checklist below, as well as the sample image, come from the 1962 Coopers & Co. Stores Ltd. Prehistoric Animals Card set.
