I can't help but agree with you on this Ted, primarily because we have evidence that the T207's (both Recruit and Broadleaf class) were printed on sheets both horizontally and vertically - similar to the Obaks (http://sep10.hugginsandscott.com/cgi...l?itemid=25005 - scroll to the bottom). I don't believe any of the current discussions or thinking around the T205/206 printing processes has suggested that link.

Just feels like (for that and other reasons) it wasn't the typical ATC/ALC production, so to speak. Regardless, there's still a lot to learn.

Not so many folks get jazzed about a find of a bunch of T207's with odd backs, eh Luke?! Now if it'd only been Napoleon, or Anon 3 Recruits!

Like you, I wish there were more to share things T207 with, but it seems the many posts here are met with, well, meh... There are a few aficionados about, but not nearly enough. Maybe that's changing and more folks are taking a closer look. That would be great ... well, my wallet might beg to differ, but the more folks interested, the better for all.

The backs are better than the T206's. Nice write ups. Is it harder to complete a complete set of T206 or T207's ???

Hi Mike


Well, it's good to hear that you feel the same way I do regarding this set. I thought I was alone with my theory. Anyhow, I just haven't spent much time trying to research in depth
this set. The different T207 tobacco backs (different from T205/T206 backs) I think are the key to solving this mystery.

Default T207

Ted & Mike,

I too agree with your theories about this set. When you add in the Red Cross finds...Louisiana only distributed cards...it just gets weirder and weirder. I think sometimes that the T207 with Red Cross backs should almost have their own T classification similar to T214 Victory who used the same artwork of T206.One could argue that the same could be said for regular T207s and those T207s with the Red Cross back...just a thought.

BTW guys...love all the posts, pictures, information, knowledge, passion that you all have.

Ben

Good question Mike. I don't know to be honest, im not a collector of T206s, but the sheer size of T206 is daunting especially if you consider back and factory combinations.

But T207 has arguably 30% to 35% of its cards considered difficult to find. The lauded Lowdermilk is not so rare as many think.

Im gonna call it a tie

It depends on what you consider complete for t206. If it is the 520 or 522 card set then t207. If you are including Wagner or Doyle, then t206 by a mile. Doyle is far more difficult than any t207. The price of Wagner makes it impossible for most collectors.
