Lot # 227 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1911 T205 Gold Border Charles Herzog and 1912 T207 Brown Background Edward Donnelly - Both Broad Leaf Backs!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Extremely desirable pair of T205 and T207 sample cards, each featuring the scarce Broad Leaf Cigarettes advertising reverse. Broad Leaf backs are encountered with much less frequency than the standard advertising backs found within the T205 (Piedmont, Sweet Caporal, and Hassan) and T207 (Recruit) sets. In fact, we have offered only a handful of Broad Leaf backs from these two sets combined in the last twenty years (far fewer than the number of rare Broad Leaf backs from the T206 set). 1) 1911 T205 Gold Border: Charles Herzog (SGC GOOD 30, Boston Rustlers). 2) 1912 T207 Brown Background: Edward Donnelly (SGC VG+ 45, Boston Rustlers). Each card is crisp and clean, with only tiny flaws contributing to the modest assigned grades. The important advertising reverse on each card is perfectly clean. Two ideal sample cards featuring the rare Broad Leaf advertising back from the T205 and T207 sets. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $480
