    1880's N224 Kinney "Military Series" Collection (78). NOTE: There are 13 graded cards in this presentation.

    The most comprehensive set of tobacco inserts cards ever produced was by Kinney Bros. tobacco and is simply called "Military Series." The unassuming name belies the massive task of assembling the over 600 currently known titles. This selection offers mostly one-color background fronts and the horizontal Kinney ad reverse. The illustrations of military personnel in full uniform from a wide selection of countries are very colorful and highly detailed. Includes: SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 2 cards, PRIV., MARINE ART. R.I. and PRIV., 2ND REGT. MASS. V.M.; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 1 card, PRIV., 69TH REGT. N.Y.S.M.; SGC 84 NM 7: 4 cards, OFFICER, 1ST REGT. R.I.M., OFFICER ART. MASS. V.M., LATIN SCHOOL BAT. MASS.
