Famous Ships Checklist (ACC# N50)

The Famous Ships set (ACC# N50) is a 48 card series of sepia-toned ships of the era. This set was issued by several manufacturers after the 1890 merger (most likely in 1895), including Allen & Ginter (Virginia Brights), Duke (Honest Long Cut), Kimball (Vanity Fair), Kinney (Sweet Caporal) and some anonymous makers.

There are two back types; one with an ad on the back (45 cards), the others blank backed. There are also three cards with “Virginia Brights Cigarettes” text of the front, the last three listed in the checklist. The cards are unnumbered and appear in the checklist below in alphabetical order by Country.
