These cards are reprints of the 1963 Brooke Bond Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Animals card set.  From what I understand, these cards where intended to be inserts in Red Rose tea products (one source indicated it was Lipton tea products) but the company scrapped the idea after printing several perforated sheets of the cards.  One theory suggests that this effort was shelved because the reissue of the 1973 ‘Animals and Their Young’ card set in 1990 was not particularly successful in terms of the card’s popularity and/or increasing tea sales.
 
At any rate, these cards were never inserted into boxes of tea and the album mentioned on the backs of the cards was never printed.  Apparently, the uncut, perforated card sheets were given out to employees and their children at a company Christmas party.  Individual cards showing up in auction sites (see below) have been cut from these perforated card sheets.
 
One final note, the numbering, text, and dates on the cards are different than the original the 1963 Brooke Bond Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Animals card set.
