1888 N126 Duke "Rulers, Flags, Arms of All Nations" Complete Set (51)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $830
Complete set of fifty-one 1888 N126 Duke "Rulers, Flags, Arms of All Nations" cards. Exceptionally strong set of these very rare and extremely condition-sensitive triple-folder design tobacco cards (similar to the T202 Hassan baseball series). Technically the condition ranges from Vg to Vg-Ex, with the exception of just a few cards slightly lesser. Each card (2.75 x 4.75 inches) features a portrait image of a country's ruler in the center and a coat of arms and flag on the end panels. This is an extremely attractive set with outstanding eye-appeal. Duke's "Rulers, Flags, Arms of All Nations" are rarely offered as a complete set, and are highly prized by historical collectors and nineteenth-century nonsport tobacco-card collectors. Total: 51 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
