    Description

    1940's R40 "Defending America" (#'d 201-248) Complete Set (48). Offered is a 48-card complete set titled "Defending America" issued just prior to WW II. The illustration style is "casual" but colorful and attractive. This series was sold in the form of perforated strips. Almost every card has been hand cut along at least one edge and will not get a numerical grade from a third party service. This is a very fresh, high end set that is for the true collector who does not need a plastic slab to validate a card. None appear to have hand cut edges. Grades 21% NM to NM/MT 35% EX to EX/MT, 44% lesser (largely due to centering)
