Title: Interesting Proof Sheet
Post by: Cedric1812 on December 21, 2017, 01:29:59 PM
Hi guys,

I was lucky enough to get a few proof sheets recently and I thought I'd offer this sample up as a Christmas teaser. I'd only heard of the set but never actually seen cards from it until now... so the question is to name the set :) (sadly there are no prizes - just pride. Although if you are in King's Lynn in April I'll get you a beer).

Does anyone else have any interesting proofs they'd like to share?

It wouldn't let me attach an image so I have uploaded it to the gallery (hoping this works): http://cigarettecardcollecting.com/index.php?action=media;sa=item;in=576 (http://cigarettecardcollecting.com/index.php?action=media;sa=item;in=576)

I have the full 50 but just zoomed in on 3.

Thanks,
Sam

Prepared by Player's in the 1940s but not actually issued. What else would you like to know/see? I can't make it too easy!

Thought I?d share ?Swimming, Diving & Lifesaving? but prepared for issue by Player?s as opposed to Ogden?s which I thought was quite interesting. The other is Ogden?s ?The Story of the Lifeboat? which would have been a lovely set (just my opinion!).

No idea, so I'll guess it's something like Picturesque Cottages series 3.

Old houses and their construction, or Picturesque houses and their construction. am only guessing.

Certainly also interested in your Ogden's Lifeboat proof sheet, would like a good scan if possible, or the real thing if possible (hint hint)

Hi,

Almost! It?s Cottage Architecture (P644-740). Plain backed proofs only known.

I thought you might appreciate the Story of the Lifeboat cards! I?ll see what I can do re: scans/photos. There is a nostalgia reprint set out there. Sadly I don?t think I?ll be selling it but if I ever did you can rest assured I?d call you first don?t worry!

Thanks,
Sam

Just find them fascinating Sam. That's all I can/need to say.
