Description

    1891 N554 Finzer "Inventors and Inventions" Complete Set (10) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Set GPA: 61.0; Registry Rank: #1 on the SGC Set Registry. Complete at a mere 10 subjects, the N554 "Inventors and Inventions" series of larger sized (2-1/4" x 3-7/8") tobacco insert cards remains on the more challenging series to complete. Circulated for the "Wild Rose" brand by Finzer & Bros in 1891, the richly detailed and colorful illustrations quickly make believers of collectors not already enthralled by 19th Century card collectibles. This set is rarely offered complete! Some may feel this is an quirky theme for tobacco cards but remember, these were the rock stars of the ages. Includes: Graded - SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards, Johann Gutenberg, Christian Huygens; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 card, Lionel Lukin; SGC 60 EX 5: 4 cards, Elias Howe, Bernard Palissy, Jethro Wood, John Ericsson; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 2 cards, Joseph Jacquard, J. & S. Montgolfier; SGC 40 VG 3: 1 card, Robert Fulton.
