This week we are pleased to have the opportunity to present the remainder of a collection of almost 200 19th century "N" Actor and Actress cards from Duke, Virginia Brights and Cross-Cut Cigarettes. This is a fresh discovery of 120+ year old collectibles and they are being offered for sale for the first time.

Both have been glued to paper; N49 Virginia Brights - #53 Bicycle Rider (GD/VG); N76 Duke's Great Americans (4) - Forrest, Hancock (sl. st.), John Smith and Webster. All grade EX; N284 Buchner Gold Coin Baseball - Andrews (trimmed); N299 Mayo Cut Plug Actresses - King Clubs (VG); N299 Mayo Cut Plug Actresses - Unidentified (VG); Uncatalogued? - The White Captive (PR).
