Lot # 1550 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1939 R19-4 Goudey Auto License Plates Unopened Pack

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $705

Unopened pack of 1939 Auto License Plates Gum, issued by The Goudey Gum Company of Boston, Massachusetts. Each pack contains a stick of gum and a license-plate card. Goudey issued Auto License Plates Gum cards from 1936 to 1939. This pack, which is dated on the wrapper, is from the final 1939 series. Thirty cards complete the 1939 set. This card issue is designated R19-4 in the standard reference guides, and while wrappers are known, we have never before seen or heard of a surviving unopened pack. The pack is very loosely sealed and the contents can be peeked at if desired from the slightly unfolded right hand flap (which could easily be folded back if desired, but this is exactly how it survived). The wrapper displays moderate wear, including a few tears along the right border. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $705
