Default 1888-1889 Allen & Ginter US Cities and Territories



Please post if you need me to repost separate flags.

Now 1st off

Pennsylvania is 45.00
This card is PRISTINE. Hell I can say it's pristine for a 120+ yr old card and I can nearly say it is as such if it were released yesterday
Those who grade, this is a solid 7, more than fair chance at an 8.
This card graded as an 8 would bring 125.00

AWKWARD centering is it's only down fall ( no it is not trimmed )
It has a bad centering and 2 MILD scuff points on the back,right side. So,as you look at it,when I say solid 7, it seems real clear to anyone familiar with card grading


This is a steal on several levels. I base the price of items on what I have invested. If no interest comes of it,I may actually consider finally getting a card graded due to the upside. Most of you know I despise grading, but even the Devil needs he due on some things

New York has a frontal surface ripple $14.00
Main has 2 rounding corners, 1 mild impacted corner ( could say rounding as well) perfect back 18.00
Wyoming 3 sharp corners,1 with a chip and a side border chip,back has period coloration 12.00
Arkansas !...as is 12.00....after I soak it,the back has 1 solid piece of paper,20.00 as I can remove it all with ease Arkansas is a RARE one to find.

That is going to be beautiful. That paper and glue sealed the color and saved it from damage over time
Boston has 3 softing corners,beautiful back 25.00. This is another one of those "Rare find" cards.
Kentucky Great Back,for nice corners 15.00
ALABAMA....2 rounding,off center,period coloration on back, 18.00
I sort of hate to sell most of these,so hard to find and hard to find at the right price. One of those sets worth putting together. Then again...my plate is SO full with the 9 sets I am working on and looking at nearly 4900.00 to put those together,so I let these go and reflect that I will find them again one day down the road...hopefully from a guy who has to pay rent :P

Please take time to review my other threads on ACTUAL antique and vintage cards ranging from 1884-1936


EDIT:
Bah
Arkansas had minor back damage prior to being glued
Looks good,but nowhere near what I had hoped for

These are all sold to a board member here

Thanks for the views.
Maybe some more of you will get interested in the near future. A hell of a lot more fun than Baseball ;P
