    1930's R186 American Chicle "Famous Aircraft" Near Set (35/50). One of the largely unknown issues of the 1930's was produced by the American Chicle Co. for their "Wings" line of spearmint gum. The outside of the wrapper warned consumers to open carefully as the inside of each wrapper were illustrations and historical information about one of 50 different famous aircraft. There are two versions, a common Canadian variety and these, the much more scarce American versions. Offered are 35 different, each has some paper issue from simply opening the wrapper but none are heavily damaged and only a few have any creasing above the "as issued" variety. Includes #'s 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 37, 38, 39, 40, 743, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49 and 50. A rare opportunity to add these to your vintage non-sports collection.
