Collection of fourteen high-grade 1938 "Horrors of War" cards. Issued by Gum, Inc., "Horrors of War" is perhaps the single most famous nonsport card set ever issued.

High Series: #207, 209, 220, 226, 227, 228, 256, and 271. This is a very attractive and exceptionally high-grade collection, with each card worthy of inclusion in an extraordinary ultra high-grade "Horrors of War" set or nonsport collection. The SMR value is $1,750. Total: 14 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,540.50
