1890 N80 Duke "Holidays" Near-Complete Set (44/50)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $300

Near-complete set of 1890 N80 Duke "Holidays" consisting of forty-four cards out of fifty in a complete set. A very attractive near-complete set of these rare, colorful, and very striking nineteenth-century tobacco cards. Each card depicts a different holiday from around the world using a colorful scene of a woman celebrating, oftentimes in native dress. The reverse features a description and history of the holiday along with advertising for Duke's Cigarettes. This set is very consistent in appearance, grading Vg to Vg-Ex, with ten technically grading lesser due to small spots of paper loss on the reverse. This is a beautiful and rarely offered near-complete set of this popular nineteenth-century issue. Total: 44 cards.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $300
