Pair of modestly graded cards from the T213 Coupon Cigarettes (Type 1) series, each graded and encapsulated by SGC: Clyde Engle (GOOD 30) and Topsy Hartsel (VG 40). T213 Coupon Cigarettes are among the most unusual, rarest, and overlooked of all tobacco-card issues. Very similar in design and borrowing the same images as the T206 set, the T213 (Type 1) set was issued exclusively in the Louisiana region. A strong case can be made that T213 (Type 1) cards are a rare type of T206. At a glance, T213-1s look exactly like T206s, but when held in hand, it is immediately apparent that they are printed on extremely thin stock, in addition to not having gloss applied to the surface as do T206s. T213-1s also have a unique advertising design on their reverses. The T213 Coupon (Type 1) series is the rarest of the three styles of T213 Coupon. Approximately seventy different T213-1s are known. This is a very attractive pair of sample cards from this extremely rare tobacco series. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
