Circa 1910 S67 Indian Chiefs Silks Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,160.00
Complete set of all fifty circa 1910 S67 Indian Chiefs silks. Issued by The American Tobacco Company, one silk was given in each package of Tokio Cigarettes. This colorful silk issue uses the very same artwork as appears on the N2 Allen & Ginter American Indian Chiefs series issued in 1888, and features many of the most legendary American Indian Chiefs. Included are Geronimo, Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, Chief Joseph, and many more. The silks each measure approximately 2 x 3.25 inches. This is one of the premier sets featuring Indians, which has always been a popular area of collecting. We have found this issue to be particularly challenging to find as a complete set compared to other Indian silks. This is a beautiful set, bright and clean with outstanding color, ranging from about Ex to Nr/Mt condition (averaging Ex-Mt). Total 50 silks. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,160.00
