Description

    1890's N312 William Hills "Wings Birds of Plumage" Complete Set (15) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Set GPA: 46.6; Registry Rank: #1 on the SGC Set Registry. The only disappointing aspect of this highly prized production of thin 2-3/8" x 3-5/8" cards is that there are only 15 subjects. Beautiful women and the elegant grace of our fine feathered friends delicately combined for a series of fantasy portraits sure to entice card enthusiast one and all. Each card displays a rarely seen "Orphan Boy" tobacco product made by William G. Hills. As only the second complete set ever offered in our data base. Technical grades more often reflect minor issues affecting the backs of cards and not corner quality or creasing. This is an attractive presentation. Includes: Graded - SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 card, Pheasant; SGC 60 EX 5: 2 cards, Bird Of Paradise I, Titmouse; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 5 cards, Peacock, Halcyon, Golden-Crested Wren, Sea-Gull, Pine-Finch; SGC 40 VG 3: 5 cards, Alexander Parrot, Siskin, Radiant Peacock, Colibri, Flamingo; SGC 30 GD 2: 2 cards, Bird Of Paradise II, Argus.
