Complete 24-card "Series of 144" subset from the 1934 R136 "Sky Birds" card set (#25-48). Four cards grade Vg-Ex, six Vg, seven Gd, and seven cards in slightly lesser grades. The "Series 144" cards from the R136 set have always been challenging for collectors. Keys: #32 James Doolittle, 36 Charles Lindbergh, and 48 Amelia Earhart (Fr-Gd). Also includes duplicates of #38 McCudden (Gd+) and 48 Earhart (Pr-Fr). Very attractive subset that could serve as a significant contribution to a R136 "Sky Birds" master set. Total: 26 cards (subset of 24 plus two duplicates). Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
