    PRUSSIA – CIGARETTE CARD ALBUM – ODEN

    SKU: 12-685

    $175.00

    This is one of the ever popular Orden cigarette card albums. The album’s topic is Imperial Germany’s varied orders and decorations. These albums were produced in the 1930’s by Waldorf Astoria of Munich. The album is complete, with all 287 cigarette cards in place. The cards were given as a premium when one bought a packet of cigarettes. For those who wanted an instant collection, one could buy the complete album with all of the cards in place. Each card measures 2 ½” x 1 3/4.” I have always found the album quite useful as a basic identification handbook. It shows many of Imperial Germany’s leading orders and decorations in full color. The album’s cover sports a wonderfully detailed Orden Pour le Mérite. As you flip through the album, you will note many of the period’s popular orders and decorations. The album measures a sizable 13 ½” x 11.” You will receive hours of pleasure as you page through this marvelous album.
