1910s E26 Dockman "Menagerie Gum" Complete Set (24)
Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $237.00
Presented is an attractive complete set of twenty-four cards from the E26 "Menagerie Gum" series. Though the set is missing three cards listed on the reverse (Antelope, Prairie Dog, and Boar), it is considered complete at twenty-four by virtually all collectors as these three cards apparently do not exist as they have never been seen and are believed to have not been produced at all. Issued by Dockman & Son, this set features vibrantly colored artwork of a variety of different wild animals. The reverse includes a complete checklist along with advertising for the Menagerie Gum brand and Dockman & Son manufacturer. Seven cards grade Vg and seventeen grade Pr to Gd. Despite the modest technical grades, this remains a very visually pleasing set of this early nonsport caramel issue rarely seen in complete-set form. Total: 24 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $237.00
