1889 N14 Allen & Ginter "General Government and State Capitol Buildings of the United States" Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,778

Complete set of fifty N14 Allen & Ginter "General Government and State Capitol Buildings of the United States" cards. Beautiful complete set of these rare and extremely condition-sensitive gold-border tobacco cards (similar to the T205 Gold Borders baseball series). Technically the condition ranges from Vg to Ex (averaging Vg-Ex), with the exception of just a few cards slightly lesser. Issued with Allen & Ginter's Cigarettes, these cards feature magnificent full-color illustrations of different government and capitol buildings throughout the United States, including the White House and Patent Office examples. This is an extremely attractive set with outstanding eye-appeal. Rarely offered as a complete set. This issue is highly prized by nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card collectors. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,778
