I only know of nine different variations of these.  The list may be
incomplete, but it is somewhat cheaper:

FRISBIE'S PIES (1 1/4 in letters)
   "        "  (1 1/4 in letters, 6 perforations 1/8 in diam)
   "        "  (1 1/4 in letters, 6 perforations 13/64 in diam)
   "        "  DEP (6 perforations)
   "        "  5c DEP (lettering reversed, 7/8 in letters)
   "        "  5c DEP (7/8 in letters, 6 perforations)
   "        "   "  "  (lettering reversed, 1 1/2 in letters, 6 perfs)
   "        "  (3/4 inch letters)
   "        "  (3/4 inch letters, 6 perforations)

A little bit of history:  You can generally only find these in NE
because the pie company only distributed in MA, Conn, RI, and perhaps a
small part of NY state.  I used to be in the antique business in
western MA, and would turn up about 6 a year.  They generally could be
bought for between $10 - $25 dollars each, so a $30 - $40 dollar price
range is really about right if you don't go out and do the searching
yourself.
Yes, I do have six of these*** on my wall - reminders of a 22 year
career in ultimate.
