Each card has been graded by PSA. Presented is a 30-card complete set of B. Morris & Son's sublime black-and-white "Actresses" tobacco inserts. All of these mementos are members of miniscule census totals at their respected tier. The issue's winsome subjects are artfully posed in beautifully focused photographic portrayals, and the 19th Century collectibles' level of quality is startlingly fresh and pure. The full-set array of scarcities includes: Graded PSA MINT 9: 4 cards w/Constance Collier, Nina Sevening/Hand on Cheek, Nina Sevening/Bo Peep Costume and Sylvia Thorne; PSA NM-MT 8: 20 cards w/Dora Barton, Jessie Bateman, Coralie Blythe, Rosie Boote, Alice Charteris, Nancy Girling, Kitty Gordon, Evie Greene, Margaret Halstan, Annie Hughes, Edna May, Maggie May, Miss McArthur, Tessie Mooney, Connie Powell, Nina Sevening/Portrait, Cossie Shalders, Marie Shields/Hands in Front, Marie Shields/Blonde and Ella Snyder; PSA NM 7: 5 cards w/Lady Annesley, Muriel Beaumont, Leonore Harris, Marion Hood and Blanche Thorpe; PSA EX-MT 6: 1 card, Decima Moore.
