    1930's-40's British Pin Up/Movie Stars Complete Sets Trio (3). Offered is a high end to high grade trio of 1940's British Pin-Up or Beauties Sets. Where the cards sets in the states utilized illustration and printing, many sets issued in the UK were real-photos and are particularly condition sensitive. Each of these three sets is a real-photo production and are complete. As is common for these issues, there is some size variance. The trio includes: 1930's "Grace and Beauty" Movie Stars Second Series (45) - Card #'s 45-90. We are told this set was found intact. Corner quality is high but the original gloss stuck the top card which is the reason for all of the "lesser" cards. Appears to be an uncirculated. Grades 67% EX/MT to NM (with a few nicer), 33% lesser due to gloss wear, staining on rev. and/or spot surface scuffing; 1930's Sarony Cigarettes "National Types of Beauty" (36) - Completes et of 36 cards. Grades EX to NM+ with a couple lesser; 1930's Carreras Black Cat "Film and Stage Beauties" (54) - Complete set of 54 cards. Grades mostly EX/MT to NM with some a little lesser/some nicer.
