    1880's N388 Admiral "National Types" Anonymous Graded Collection (19). NOTE: After the auction went live, five cards were added by the consignor bringing the total to 19 cards.

    The N388 series of "National Types" is a scarcer promotion but were circulated in three back variants and two different types of card stock. There are two versions that include a lithographer credit and one that offers no credit line. This gallery offers examples of the later, all but two are the scarcer "Anonymous" version on the thinner card stock. In total, there are 50 different subjects but not all are found with each variety. A few cards seem to be graded on the conservative side. Includes: Graded - SGC 60 EX 5: 2 cards, Brazilian and Chilian; SGC 55 VG-EX+ 4.5: 6 cards, Austrian, Chilian, Continental, Egyptian, Russian and Spanish; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 3 cards, Austrian, Continental and Egyptian; PSA VG-EX 4: 1 card, Russian; SGC 45 VG+ 3.5: 1 card, Spanish; SGC 40 VG 3: 4 cards, Brazilian, Chilian, Dutch and Portugese, SGC 10 Poor 1: 1 card, Continential.
