Can anyone identify which series these cards are from ?
« on: April 11, 2018, 09:11:49 AM »
Ive finally worked out how to post a new topic without pressing the big red button,apologies in advance for posting almost the same stuff at the end of another thread.
Anyway on to the interesting bit..
I had a cracking buy of cards at a local auction house,one of those moments when you look in the box and try not to let out a little squeak.

Now I found these in there,they are in great condition,so good in fact I originally thought they must be older repros,but Ive decided thats not the case,however after thinking they must be Philips Chinese series I now discover they are not..or they might be if the other guy on the internet has got it wrong,Im sure you can see my dilema.
As this is the place to ask,and you were very helpful with my last "unidentified" posting does anyone have a clue what this series is called ?  I have 13 cards in total

Acording to the World Index, cards inscribed Phillips Guinea Gold Cigarettes were issued by Godfrey Phillips between 1899 and 1904.  Going by the subjects my guess would be the "Boxer Rebellion" series.  The Boxer rebellion was between 1899 and 1901 so the time period would be right.

Edit: just seen the other thread which confirms this.
