    Description

    Circa 1900 T432 American Tobacco Co. "Butterflies" Near Set (48/50). This very scarce series is based on the beautiful illustrations used for the N183 "Butterflies" edition produced for W.M. Kimball in 1888. The American Tobacco Co. chose to forgo the standard checklist back with a general advertisement and added numbers to the fronts. Rarely offered in any quantity close to complete, this presentation is only two cards shy of completion, missing #'s 49 and 50. Eight cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 1 card, #14; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 4 cards, #'s 9, 17, 22 and 39; SGC 60 EX 5: 3 cards, #'s 11, 23 and 26. Grades VG/EX to EX with some lesser and some nicer.
