March 2018 Non-sport Acquisitions

by cnangle - 38 cards (Last updated on Mar. 31, 2018)


1. 1895 J & P Coats Uniforms of the U.S. Army (H606) #NNO 1777-1783


One of my goals for 2018 is to complete this set. It is by far my favorite 19th Century set. It's small at only 20 cards but they don't show up very often, at least not at a price I'm willing to pay.

Several lots appeared on ebay last week and I opened the bidding expecting to be quickly outbid. Luckily (for me), I was the only bidder.

6. 1895 J & P Coats Uniforms of the U.S. Army (H606) #NNO 1821-1832


I'm not sure what these soldiers are standing on. It appears to be a fort or barracks of some kind but I haven't seen anything like it.

7. 1895 J & P Coats Uniforms of the U.S. Army (H606) #NNO 1833-1850


Mail call! The same scene is still repeated in the Army today.

8. 1895 J & P Coats Uniforms of the U.S. Army (H606) #NNO 1858-1861


I can't imagine sitting around in the hot summer sun is those heavy wool uniforms. They look incredibly uncomfortable.

10. 1895 J & P Coats Uniforms of the U.S. Army (H606) #NNO 1888-1890


Their head gear is interesting. I didn't realize the US Army ever wore feathered helmets.

Yeah, I don't get the joke on the Arbuckle card either.  But the Columbus cards are beauties. Especially the Salamanca one.  Nice pick-ups.

I'm also not finding the satire card very funny. Maybe they were more easily amused back then? I like the back much better- I enjoy seeing old buildings, which probably weren't that old back then!

I like the musician card, mainly because of the unusual stringed instrument she is playing.

Wow. Great list. The Columbus cards are amazing.

I'm also really liking the Columbus cards. I'm still trying to figure out where my interest lies in regards to 19th tobacco and trade cards, but this Columbus series is on my short-list of sets to complete.
