1893 N116 Duke "Illustrated Songs" Near-Complete Set (24/25)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $705

Near-complete set of twenty-four cards (missing only one for completion) of the 1893 N116 Duke "Illustrated Songs" cards. Condition ranges from Vg to Ex (includes a few cards slightly lesser, but all still Good or better, and all very attractive cards). This extremely colorful set was issued with Duke's Honest Long Cut tobacco. Each card features a colorful lithographic image, mostly of a pretty woman intended to represent the song being illustrated. Collectors have always appreciated the design and concept of this set. This is a particularly scarce 1890s tobacco issue. Duke's "Illustrated Songs" are rarely seen or offered as a complete set. Total: 24 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $705
