Lot # 1808 (of 1807)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1880s N304 Mayo's Cut Plug "Costumes and Flowers" Near-Complete Set (19/20)

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $474.00

Extremely attractive near-complete set of N304 "Costumes and Flowers" missing only one card for completion. This set, issued with Mayo's Cut Plug in the 1880s, features colorful lithography of beautiful women wearing, as the name suggests, an assortment of dresses and flower accessories. The reverse of each card is blank. The set grades Vg-Ex to Ex with two lesser when viewed from the front, but ten cards are technically lower grade as a result of paper loss or glue residue on the reverse, both extremely common condition issues among nineteenth-century cards. This remains an exceptionally attractive near-complete set of this scarce and popular nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card issue. Total: 19 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $474.00
