Presidents’ Day is the day we here in the USA celebrate the birthdays of our first President, George Washington, and our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. So finding some Minty cards of Washington and Lincoln just makes sense.
The set consists of 135 cards, each measuring 2-1/16” x 2-7/8” instead of the modern standard of 2-1/2" by 3-1/2". As with many sets back then, it was released in multiple series, just like the iconic 1952 Topps Baseball cards. Look ’N See was released in two series, 75 cards of the first and 60 cards for the second. Each card back had a trivia question. A red piece of cellophane could be held over the card to reveal hidden answers.
There were a lot of centering and chipping issues with these cards so finding high grade Look ‘n See cards is not easy. Our Mint Monday cards are certainly towards the top of the scale.
And if we are going to give you Washington, we have to give you Lincoln.
That will do it for this Mint Monday. Enjoy the day off if you have it, and for everyone, hopefully this is the start of a perfect week.
