Complete set of fifty 1888 N72 Duke "Coins of All Nations” cards. Magnificent complete set of this classic nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card set. Issued with Duke's Cigarettes, each card features a colorful illustration (with tremendous and very comical graphics!) of a coin and person in native costume from one of fifty different countries represented. The countries are checklisted on the back of the cards. Technically the condition ranges from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Vg-Ex/Ex), with the exception of a couple of cards which are very slightly lesser. Duke's "Coins of All Nations" are rarely offered as a complete set, and are highly prized by both coin collectors and nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card collectors. Total 50 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $588
