Lot # 219 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Roy Ellam Southern Leaguer - Brown Hindu Back

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Attractive example of Southern Leaguer Roy Ellam, Nashville, from the T206 White Border set with the very scarce Brown Hindu advertising reverse. Brown Hindu is a very scarce back, not as rare as Red Hindu, but very unusual and extremely rare compared to most other T206 advertising backs. Thirty-four of the forty-eight Southern Leaguers can be found with a Brown Hindu reverse. All thirty-four are presented in this auction in a series of different lots. This is an extremely attractive example presenting with a crisp image, light touches of wear to the corners (a very faint surface wrinkle is visible in the lower left), and virtually perfect centering. The reverse features an entirely clean and well-centered Hindu advertisement. This is a very desirable Southern Leaguer from the legendary T206 set with the scarce Brown Hindu tobacco advertisement on the reverse.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $840
