Distributed in packs of Old Mill, Helmar, Turkey Red and Red Sun cigarettes, the S74 "silks" are available on white and colored backgrounds, with the white backgrounds slightly more scarce.  Very fragile, these silks are often found with their paper backings missing.  This collection of ten ungraded silks contains a mixture of Old Mill and Turkey Red backs, along with two examples which are missing the backs altogether.  Collection includes the following:  Old Mill (6): Beck k(VG), Bell (VG), Mattern (VG), Merkle (VG/EX), Snodgrass (F), Wolter (G); Turkey Red (2): Bridwell (VG), Quinn (VG/EX); Missing Backs (2):  Hartsel (Blue print, G), Schaefer (G).  Ten silks total.
