Although technically this one is not a cameo ( i.e. made with a brass die), we have included a number of other cameo-like items not made with a brass die in this section. It also does not strictly fit our definition of a figural cameo as one whose shape is that of it's product. But this one is such an extraordinary design that we wanted
to include it as a figural cameo variation. It is a figural "cameo" (butterfly) on a diecut figural (leaf) trade card.
