D. Buchner & Co. - N285 Morning Glory Maidens


1888
N285 Morning Glory Maidens
D. Buchner & Co.
USA
51 cards (1 Football)

Unnumbered cards each showing a young woman, similar to Ogdens Cigarettes' Lady Cricket and Football Team cards. Also showing a contemporary poster illustrating some of the cards in  the series, including the Foot Ball card.
UPDATE:  Thanks to exdrummer on the CigaretteCardCollecting forum, who has informed me that there are three different 'backs' for this set. I'm still trying to track down an image of the checklist back.
UPDATE (22 December, 2014): Chris Corner has very kindly sent in a scan of the Checklist back, which he obtained from the Cartophilic Society of Great Britian reference book RB151 - North American Tobacco Issues. I'd also like to thank Steve F. (CigaretteCardCollecting forum) for the scan of the Cricket card from this collection.
