1890 N111 Duke "Gems of Beauty” Complete Set (25)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $529
Complete set of twenty-five 1890 N111 Duke "Gems of Beauty” cards. A very attractive complete set of these rare, colorful, and very striking nineteenth-century tobacco cards, with eighteen cards ranging from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt, and seven Vg. This is a beautiful set with an overall strong Excellent appearance across the board. Duke Tobacco cards in general are far rarer than cards issued by many other tobacco companies such as Allen & Ginter. Issued with Duke’s Honest Long Cut and Fair Play Long Cut brand tobacco, each card features a colorful, graphically detailed lithographic image of an unnamed "beauty" dressed in fancy Victorian attire. Duke's “Gems of Beauty” is rarely offered as a complete set. Total 25 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
SOLD FOR $529
