Duke & Goodwin Holidays Checklist (ACC# N80)

Here’s the checklist for the Holidays set (ACC# N80). Both the Duke and Goodwin companies produced these cards. The set was issued around 1890. Duke packaged them with the Duke’s Cigarettes brand and Goodwin with the Old Judge and Dog’s Head brands.

This set depicts holidays from around the world. The front of each card shows a person from the particular country celebrating a holiday. Instead of a checklist, the back of each card has a description of the holiday and it’s tradition.
