Lot # 352 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border "Happy" Smith - American Beauty 460 Back!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,920

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Extremely scarce T206 example of "Happy" Smith (Brooklyn Superbas) featuring the desirable American Beauty 460 advertising reverse. American Beauty 460 is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual, and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising back. The offered example displays a crisp image and bold colors, with even wear to the corners, centering to the right, and thin borders characteristic of American Beauty cards. The reverse is boldly printed, with light traces of staining visible along the right edge. This is a particularly difficult card to locate with an American Beauty 460 reverse and will likely be highly prized by advanced T206 set collectors. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,920
