    1911 T69 Helmar Cigarettes "Historic Homes" Complete Set (50). 1911 was a big year for gold border tobacco cards. "Historic Homes" featured to domestic residences of famous American and historical events in early American history. Generally found in less than impressive condition, this presentation certainly qualifies as an eye catching exception to that rule. Just a small amount of upgrading would reward the hobbyist with a tough to equal all EX or better assembly. In total, 12 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded Cards - SGC 84 NM 7: 6 cards w/Birthplace of Whittier, Home Sweet Home, Jumel Mansion, Monticello, Mount Vernon and Poe's Cottage; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards w/Home of John Ericsson and Home of Minute Man; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 card, Home of Samuel Smith; SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, Home of Anne Hathaway; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 1 card, The Old Manse; SGC 40 VG 3: 1 card, Van Cortlandt Mansion. Overall, the set grades 12% NM, 54% EX to EX/MT, 32% VG to VG/EX with a few trimmed.
