1934 R151 National Chicle Tom Mix Complete Set (48)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,930.00

Complete set of 48 "Tom Mix Adventure Stories" booklets issued by National Chicle in 1934. 17 grade Nr/Mt, 12 Ex-Mt, 13 Ex, 4 Vg-Ex/Ex, and 2 Vg-Ex. This is an extraordinarily high-grade set, especially for these somewhat fragile eight-page booklets which are so susceptible to damage. This might be the best set in the world of this extremely condition-sensitive issue. At first glance the entire set appears Nr/Mt or better. Most examples graded less than Ex-Mt have been downgraded due to very technical concerns, such as slight as-issued "diamond cuts." Each booklet is crisp, clean, perfectly flat, and obviously unread. It is remarkable that the set has survived in such extraordinary condition. This is a stunning high-grade set, and the first complete set of this rare 1930s bubble-gum issue that we have ever offered. The set is accompanied by a "Tom Mix Adventure Stories Chewing Gum" wrapper. The wrapper is in Excellent condition. Total 48 booklets plus wrapper. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,930.00
