    Description

    1889 N85 Duke's "Postage Stamps" Near Set (49/50). This series was circulated with an actual postage stamp adhered to each card. This unique feature could mean every card can be considered a one-of-a-kind collectible. The scenes follow a postal theme from countries around the world. Each of the 49 cards has had the front postage stamp removed. Fronts present nicely, most backs have adhesive residue, some stained as well or have minor to light amounts of surface loss.
