    1886 N16 Allen & Ginter "Natives In Costume" Near Set (49/50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This set ranks #1 on the SGC Set Registry with a 46.1 GPA. This is not an easy set to complete, particularly in middle to higher grades. But the reward is well worth the sweat and postage costs. Titled "Natives in Costumes," a better title should have been "Natives In Traditional Garments." Produced by Allen & Ginter, this is one of the more attractive 19th century tobacco sets produced. Every finely illustrated and professionally lithographed card displays a range of hues and a rich metallic gold background making the perfect elegant final touch. Missing Abyssinia for completion. Includes: Graded - SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 4 cards, w/Australia (Indian), Bulgaria, China and Egypt; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 3 cards, w/Circassia, Tripoli and Turkey; SGC 60 EX 5: 12 cards, w/ Arabia, Ceylon, Corea, England, Eskimo, France, Hindustan, Holland, Nubia, Portugal, Spain and Venezuela; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 10 cards, w/America (Indian), Canada, Greece, Hayti, Japan, Java, Mexico, Siam, Switzerland and Zululand; SGC 40 VG 3: 4 cards, w/ Annam, Italy, Patagonia and Scotland; SGC 30 GD 2: 8 cards, w/Albania, Brazil, Dahomey, Kirghiz, Lapland, Morocco, New Caledonia and South Africa (Boer); SGC 20 FR 1.5: 4 cards, w/ Germany, Peru, Russia and Zanzibar (Turk); SGC Authentic: 4 cards, w/American, Madagascar, Servia and Tartary.
