Tobacco Tag Collection Paper Tags, Over 1800 Tags:
What I Know of this collection. It was found in a trunk in California along with a few more items from the Drummond family.
It is the Tobacco tag collection of James Drummond Jr. There are over 1800 tags in the collection, someone had written a number by each tag before this collection found its way to me.
It is an amazing collection of tags. The first 4 pages look different in style from the rest of the collection. I suspect that James Jr did the first few pages before he shipped out to Yale and may have completed the collection while he was Vice President of the company.
Another unusual thing about this collection is that it does not appear to contain any (or very few) tags from Virginia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.
This collection came to me in a scrapbook with many ot the pages coming loose. I removed the pages and have them in plastic pages to protect them.Scan down the page to see the first part of this collection. There is another listing that shows the remainder of the collection. It is listed as "Tobacco Tag Collection Paper Tags Part 2". It is listed at $100,000 to prevent anyone buying it. But if someone does buy it, the buyer gets all of the tags shown in both listings.
