Extraordinary high-grade complete set of 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders (50 cards), all graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is an extremely attractive complete set of this classic tobacco issue! Listed on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 5.07, this set currently ranks tenth finest.

T201s are so difficult to find in high grade as they are often downgraded due to to minor condition flaws. The thin stock on which T201s are printed makes them especially susceptible to very light corner rounding and surface wrinkles.
