Tobacco Card Set, Wd & Ho Wills, Mining, Coal, Gold, Diamonds Etc, 1916:
Description: Original Tobacco Card Set - W.D. & H.O. Wills, Mining. This set of 50 cards was issued in 1916.Condition: Very Good.PLEASE NOTE: None of my cards have been trimmed or altered in any way. If they appear out of shape it will be due to my poor scanning and not poor cards! Plus: If you're not familiar with Tobacco cards they were issued as free insert with packets of cigarettes in the year stated above.Below is an image of the first few cards in this set, this set like all my others sets come in plastic storage pages as shown. Subjects featured in this set are as follows: Asbestos, China Clay, Coal, Copper, Diamonds, Gold, Iron, Marble, Mica, Oil, Platinum, Plumbago, Radium, Rubies, Salt, Sapphires, Silver, Tin & Turquoises. (A number of these subjects are repeated within the set).
Description of Condition
POOR: Usually torn or creased cards, damage to picture or damage to reverse of card, damaged (rounded) corners also if card is very dirty.
FAIR: Showing signs of considerable handling, causing corner or edge damage or a card from one of the better categories listed below with one of the defects mentioned above.
GOOD: Showing a bit of age with only slight damage such as slightly damaged corners (not quite 'sharp' corners), slight discolouration (but not stained), but certainly not torn or creased.
VERY GOOD: Cards are clean on both front & back, with pretty good sharp corners, we do allow for slight signs of wear along the edges for example. looking nearly as good as the day they were printed.
EXCELLENT: I would class these as cards that have been handled but with a lot of care causing no visable damage.
MINT: Not a grading I like to use very often as how can you expect a collectable to be so old and in 'Mint' condition? Well it is if they look the same as the day they were printed. To be fair this does include cards with imperfections which were caused during the printing process which we have no control over such as off centre printing, slight colour imperfection, marks caused by faulty printing plates etc...cigarettecards Specialises in Selling all types of collectable cards. Keep an eye on my weekly listings which also include single 'type' cards, sets, cigarette cards frames, card storage binders, pages and anything else I can find related to Tobacco & Trade card collectables!
