Assembled is a 1911 T205 Gold Border near set of (195/208) cards with (11) graded plus an additional variation (Ford). This extremely low-grade collection overwhelmingly grades (PR) or (Authentic) with the majority displaying a combination of acute wear including coloring, paper loss/residue, pinholes, trimming and/or writing. Approximately 10% grade in the (FR) range with a couple better. The majority of cards display common advertising backs with nearly 30% having tougher Hassan, Honest Long Cut, Polar Bear or Sovereign backs. Unless noted, each card is flanked by a Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising reverse. A century-old upgrade project worth undertaking! Highlights include:
