    1887 N6 Allen & Ginter "City Flags" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! How disappointing it would be to say this is another 50-card complete set of 19th century tobacco cards. This series of "City Flags" was produced by Allen & Ginter is really a fantastic display of color, quality and civic pride. The N6 edition is rarely, if ever offered as a complete set. With 38 of the 50 cards (76%) surviving in EX to NM+ condition, this presentation would be extremely difficult to improve upon. Includes: Graded - SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 2 cards, Trieste and Genoa; SGC 84 NM 7: 5 cards, Strasburg, St. Louis, Buenos Ayres, Montevideo and Ostend; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 6 cards, Amiens, Baltimore, Catalonia, Geneva, Valparaiso and Versailles; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 9 cards, Hamburg, Lyons, Rouen, Washington, Amsterdam, Boston, Havana, London, Marseilles; SGC 60 EX 5: 16 cards, San Francisco, Naples, Philadelphia, St. Etienne, Toulouse, Smyrna, Algiers , Bremen, Calais, Chicago, Corsica, Dublin, Leghorn, New Orleans, New Guatemala, Nice; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 6 cards, Edinburgh, Paris, Bordeaux, Mecca, New York, Rotterdam; SGC 40 VG 3: 6 cards, Biscay, Carrara, Frankfort, Jerusalem, Modena, Oporto. A fantastic addition to a 19th Century collection!
