Addendum (4/6/17, 2:00 PM): The catalog description referred to a coupon that accompanied this card, which was an error. Offered here are only the cabinet and the matched T210.
This lot is composed of two cards: The first is a traditional T210 Old Mill tobacco card (measuring 1-1/2 x 2-5/8 inches) of Pressley (Roanoke) from "Series 2" Virginia League. The second is a matched H801-7 Old Mill cabinet card, also of Pressley, featuring the very same pose. Together they make for an extraordinary display! This is only the second time we have ever offered a matched pair. The extreme rarity of the larger (approx: 5.25 x 7.25 inches) Old Mill cabinet cards makes assembling a matched pair a very difficult collecting challenge. The small Old MIll (T210) card is in overall Good condition, clean front and back, with evidence of album removal on the reverse. The Old Mill cabinet card (H801-7) is very pleasing but technically in Fair condition due to several spots of paper loss on the reverse; this example has an overall VG appearance. The card displays light, even wear to the corners and a couple light creases. The reverse displays bold black print. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
