    1888 N332 S. F. Hess Buffalo Bill Cody SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. One of the most iconic of Western personalities, William Cody would have just returned from the European tour of his "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show" in 1888 when this rare tobacco insert card was issued. Offered is a very scarce N332 S. F. Hess & Co. cigarette card, now graded SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. This is one of eight total examples on recorded, the second finest copy known. A marvelous excellent looking card, the technical assessment is a reflection of the lone extremely faint surface wrinkle in the lower region of the card. One of four rare 19th Century tobacco cards featuring Buffalo Bill Cody. Each is unique of among the finest known examples.
