    1910's "S" and "SC" Tobacco Silks Extensive Collection (1,000+) With Complete & Near Sets. Offered is a comprehensive collection of over 1,000 collectible silks from the 1910's era. This is the largest accumulation of silks to ever be presented at auction. Subject matter includes Birds, Butterflies, National Coat of Arms, Military & Lodge Medals, College Pennants, National Flags, Flags & Arms, World Flags, National Flag, Songs & Flowers, Flowers, Fruits, Presidents of United States, Rulers, State Maps, State Flowers, City Seals, Regimental Uniforms, Canadian Sports, Calendar Months, Canadian/English City & Arms, Canadian Colleges, Flags of the British Empire/Kensitas and Nature. Most of the collection is dutifully mounted onto 8-1/2" x 11" black paper album pages. This has protected them as most would be EX to NM condition. Unmounted silks are mostly VG to EX with just a few are unnaturally small. Mounted silks are mostly EX to NM. This is a fantastic gallery that would take a mammoth amount of time and effort to assemble piece by piece. See our web site for more details.
