1888 Allen & Ginter Tobacco Card Fancy Belgium Flag Rare N9 Variation.rare:
This fantastic card was issued by the ALLEN and GINTER. Tobacco Co of Richmond Virginia. with each card being an insert premium in their brands of Tobacco and Cigarettes during 1888. The series is entitled “Flags of All Nations (Series 1) ” . designated as series N9 in Burdick's American Card Catalogue. The front of each card features a colorful image representative of the Counties Flag,, while the back features a list of all of the 48 cards in the series as well as advertising for Allen & Ginter of Richmond Virginia . This card is pne of the key rare cards from this series. There are a few very rare cards that were issued with this series. The Roumania and Corea Flags, and two scarce variations. This one of the scarce variations. It features the Belgium Flag with a pack of Viginia Brights cigarettes in the back ground. The normal variation does not feature this pack and this variation is though to be one of the scarcest key cards to this set. The Card measure 2 ¾ inches by 1 ½ inches approximately . The card does have some edge and corner wear,and some slight wear to the print at the back. However it is free from creases. I have scanned the card front and back, fairly large for you to be able to judge condition for yourself . AS AN ADDED BONUS I will also throw in a regular variation of the Belgium card (although even this one is a slightly scarcer Right Bower Brand type). This is a very hard card to find. To get a better idea of how tough it is please see page 39 of the Forbes/Mitchel American Tobacco Cards Guide. It goes into greater detail about each of the rare variations.
