    Description

    1880's Goodwin & Co. "Gypsy Queen Straight Cut" Cigarettes (N175) Retail Display Box! The Gypsy Queen brand name is synonymous with exceptional rarity, quality and immense appeal. Acquiring a single baseball card in any condition presents a rare opportunity for the novice and advanced collector alike. Auction results and opportunities alike, confirm the rarity of the N175 "Gypsy Queen" brand cards and the non-sport cards that carry the Goodwin & Co. brand. Packaging with the "Gypsy Queen" name is almost impossible to find. The only known full tobacco pack is being offered in this auction and this well preserved counter display box would make the ultimate companion piece. The outside panels of the 11-3/8" x 6-1/2" x 3-1/4" wood cigarette box is covered with the Gypsy Queen Straight Cut log-type. The inside top cover shows the colorful portrait of the young queen, resting outdoors, surrounded by trees, flowers and butterflies. Considering its age and extreme rarity the overall general wear is totally acceptable. The top cover is fully attached. Amazing that the string that once kept the cover from being opened too wide is still there but is loose from the base. The inside side surfaces are covered with blue paper, also affected by staining and soiling. Overall condition is very-good to excellent.
