1889 N186 W. S. Kimball "Dancing Women" Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $2,115.00

Complete set of fifty 1889 N186 W.S. Kimball "Dancing Women" cards. A very attractive set of these scarce and colorful tobacco cards, bright and clean, with a uniform overall Excellent appearance. 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. Issued with Kimball's Cigarettes, each card features a beautifully rendered multicolor illustration of a dancing woman in native costume from one of fifty different countries represented. The countries are checklisted on the back of the cards. Cards issued by W. S. Kimball & Co. tend to be far rarer than those issued by some of the larger tobacco companies of the era such as Allen & Ginter. This is a rarely offered and very attractive nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card set with outstanding eye-appeal. Total 50 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
