Presented is a 50-card 1910 T48 Turkey Red Turkish Cigarettes "Butterfly Series" complete set. Each of these 2" x 2-5/8" gold-bordered cards feature butterflies, mostly in a wings-open view. The card reverse features the title of the series, the Latin butterfly name and habitat location. All but a few examples bear the routinely found factory stamping on the reverse. Stamping aside, the colorful array grades 18% EX to EX/MT, 52% VG to VG/EX, 30% lesser (mostly due to back damage).
