    Very Rare 1888-89 N621 Blackwell's Durham "Actresses" SGC-Graded Near Set (4). NOTE: At least two additional subjects are confirmed. This is not a complete set.

    The reference guides mention only four known Actresses from this extremely rare series. The cards present as the all too typical insert card of the era but the "Please Read Offer on Other Side" copy put them into a rare class now designated N621. The back copy explains how during a certain week of the 1888 or 1889 cards can be exchanged for cash in quantities of 100 which quite possibly explains their rarity in the current market. The 4-card near set includes: SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 3 cards, Frl. Jager, National and Lizzie Webster; SGC 40 VG 3: 1 card, Eva Schaler.
