Description

An off-grade group of 135 Dixie Lids is offered here. These elusive collectibles feature numerous movie stars, cowboy legends, and even nature and circus subjects. Originally, the pieces served as protective coverings for the tops of single-serving ice cream cups, with a small picture printed on the underside of each one. The lids in this group, which contains a few duplicates, are of the series' smaller size (approximately 2-1/4" in diameter). Lids of this configuration were susceptible to a variety of condition pitfalls, most notably the loss of the fragile edge "tabs" that allowed consumers to easily remove them from their cups. The majority of the lids in this admittedly well-handled assembly are missing their tabs and show other faults (thus grading PR); condition of the remainder is about GD to VG/EX. The lot includes:
