A5 - City Flag Album - Allen & Ginter Tobacco. Souvenir
Albums of this type were probably intended to replace the individual
tobacco cards if the smoker desired. They were purchased with
75 to 100 coupons packed with cigarettes, this album was issued
in 1889 with the images of card series City Flags (Burdick 6).
Gorgeous illustrated pages grouping the cities by country with
vignettes not present on the card series. Far scarcer than the
individual cards. Light cover soil. Some corner wear, minor tears
and paper loss on back cover.. (a5album) $300.00.
