    1887 N166 Goodwin "Occupations for Women" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This is the #1 set on the SGC Set Registry with a GPA of 45.8. The gentleman of the late 19th Century was fascinated by the concept of a woman doing the same occupation as a man. Combine that vision with a voluptuous vixen "on the job" and high quality lithography and the result is one of the more fun and attractive tobacco series of the late 1880's.
