    Description

    1887 N42 Allen & Ginter "Song Birds of The World" Complete Set (50) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Set GPA: 53.8; Registry Rank: #1 on the SGC Set Registry. The strict technical assessment of this rarely offered 50-card complete set of N42 "Song Birds of The World" is 54% Excellent to Near-Mint but visual quality is high throughout the entire span of colorful and wonderfully illustrated cards. Ex. the "poor" card has EX/MT corners. These large sized productions are condition sensitive and minor issues with the reverse side of the card attest to grades over corner quality or creasing. A proud set to add to your 19th Century collection.
