Antique Cigarette Collector Cards - Pigeons

£29.99

Product description

Cigarette companies issued series of collector cards under various headings. If you wanted to carry forth this habit from the confectionery companies into adult life then this was a way of doing it. This series from Cope's Cigarettes of Liverpool and London was issued in 1926 and called Pigeons. It will be apparent that this is not a full series but does have 9 of the cards that make one up.
The cards are;

#5 - Barb, #8 - Nun, #9 - Satinette, #14 - Saddle Tumbler; #15 - Turbits (not very good condition), #17 - Flying Homer; #19 - Vizor, #20 - Archangel, #21 - Blondinette

Other than Turbits the cards are in remarkably good condition bearing in mind they are 90 years old. Cards are not unfortunately available as individual sales.

Now REDUCED!
