Lot # 1805 (of 1807)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1889 N34 Allen & Ginter "World Sovereigns" Near-Complete Set (47/50)

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $829.50

Near-complete set of N34 "World Sovereigns" (47 of 50 cards in the set). Missing only three cards (Kings of Belgium, Portugal, and Sweden) for completion. This set features detailed and colorful lithography of leaders from all over the world. The reverse of each card presents a complete checklist along with advertising for Allen & Ginter at the bottom. This set is very pleasing, ranging in grade from Vg to Ex with ten lesser when viewed from the front. There are, however, twenty-six cards that would technically grade lower due to paper loss or writing on the reverse, condition issues that are very common among nineteenth-century cards. This is an extremely attractive near-complete set of this classic, and very popular, nineteenth-century nonsport issue. Total: 47 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $829.50
