Die-cut trade cards from the "Types of Vessels" series (N139), issued in an unnumbered set of 25 cards in 1889 by W. Duke Sons & Co. to promote Honest Long Cut Tobacco. The card versos have "Honest Long Cut" text printed in either green or blue. Knapp is the lithographer of the green backs and Giles is the lithographer of the blue backs. Because all but one card in the series are affixed to the original album page, card versos are not visible.
Inscription: Printed text along lower edge of card: LIGHTER, N. Y. BAY. [card verso is not visible as card is affixed to original album page]
