Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $355.50

Collection of forty-four different Type 5 cards from the Kinney Bros. "Novelties" set.

Fourteen cards grade Vg-Ex to Ex, twenty cards grade Good to Vg, and ten cards lesser including three with irregular factory cuts. Each card front is colorfully illustrated while the reverse features a Kinney Bros. advertisement and an encouragement to cut the card in the shape of the pictured design; other types from this set were issued as die-cuts. The cards in this lot measure 1-5/8 by 2-7/8 inches. Total: 44 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $355.50
