Lee Heavy Cardboard Style Tags

I recently picked up these great Lee tags advertising overalls and matched shirts-pants, but have no idea when they're from or how they were used. The seller said they were from the 1940s. I'm think they're from the very late 1940s or possibly the early 1950s because I've seen the figure below used in ads from that time frame. The pieces, which are most likely some sort of store display item,  are printed on very thick cardboard and measure 7 1/2 x 2 1/2. I'll go out on a limb and say that judging from what I've seen and have in my collection of Lee die-cut stand up figures, there is a cowboy that probably goes along with these guys.
