1887 N95 Duke "Actresses” Complete Set (25)
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $600
Complete set of twenty-five 1887 N95 Duke "Actresses" cards. A very attractive set of these rare, colorful, and very striking nineteenth-century tobacco cards. These cards (approximately 2.5 x 4.25 inches) feature various then very well known actresses dressed in theater costumes. This set presents extremely well, with most cards displaying as Vg to Ex and three as Gd, but almost all the cards display touches of color added to the delicate black borders or corners. This beautiful, large-format set was issued with Honest Long Cut tobacco brand, an advertisement for which appears on the reverse of each card. This very scarce issue is rarely offered as a complete set. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $600
