1888 N36 Allen & Ginter "American Indians" Big Razor SGC EX/NM 80 - 1 of 1!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $593
Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Exceptional high-grade example of Big Razor from the N36 Allen & Ginter large-format "American Indians" series. By any measure, these are among the rarest and most beautiful of all nineteenth-century tobacco-card issues. It is not surprising that these cards have begun to attract serious attention, long overdue, from advanced collectors. Issued in 1888, N36s are one of the rarest of all the Allen & Ginter sets. They feature the same subjects and designs as the smaller N2 Allen & Ginters, but in a larger format and with extra background artwork included in each card's design. Measuring approximately 2.75 x 3.25 inches, the large-format N36 Allen & Ginters are widely recognized as one of the most attractive and highly prized card sets ever issued. The offered card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, outstanding centering, strong corners, and a clean reverse displaying only a small age spot in the upper right corner (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). Only example graded at this level with one higher. This is a very clean and extremely attractive sample from this rare and popular nineteenth-century tobacco-card set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $593
