Sale Date — Wednesday-Thursday, 20-21 November, 2019
Category — Private Die Stamp Collections and Balances
EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR COLLECTION OF PATENT MEDICINE COMPANY ADVERTISING CARDS, ASSEMBLED OVER MANY YEARS BY A COLLECTOR WHO WAS METICULOUS ABOUT CONDITION.
As evidenced by the quality of his stamps in this sale, the late Mr. Salmansohn was one of the most meticulous collectors we know -- and he was also well known among Revenue dealers for his condition standards. As with his stamps, he would only add a card to his collection if it was in choice condition. While a few might show some slight toning or a tiny flaw, nearly all have sharp corners and look as fresh as the day they were printed. This collection represents nearly all the cards in Mr. Salmansohn's holding. We removed only a handful of the rarest designs to offer individually or in small groups.
A PDF of the collection is available on our website. Our estimate represents only an average of $11-$15 per card, and while some do sell in that range, many bring $100 or more when offered individually
