That would be a great get Zach - as you well know, Luxello pins are super tough and gorgeous as well.

Here's a group of 6 Luxellos that sold in a 2009 Legendary auction. As you can see, no Moore.

Upwards of $500 apiece for common players would be my estimate, provided the condition is as nice as the ones pictured above.

I've been on the lookout for a Luxello Plank for years. Still haven't come across one yet.

Those pins really are quite beautiful. Don't think I've ever seen them before.

Pretty sweet huh?

I split the Luxello pin discussion from the E card thread to avoid hijacking.

Anyone have one of these in their collection?

Good idea, Ben. A few years ago, maybe five, I was in the talks for a Moore for around $1200--they've certainly come down in price a bit. I know one collector whose set may be complete with some duplicates. They're mighty tough and also probably my favorite pin set. A Plank would be phenomenal.

Great looking pins. Never seen them before.

I've never seen those either. Very cool pins! I don't like pins, but I'd definitely take an example from this set.

I'm not sure a plastic sleeve alone would provide adequate protection for a vintage pin.

The acid-free mylar sleeve stapled onto a cardboard backing method works well. They can be a little awkward to store though.

"Bob"- I think most people who collect any amount of pins usually store and display them in Riker boxes...I'm sure you've seen them....thin, two-piece boxes with a cotton-like insert and glass top. Also used by insect and whatsit collectors.

On another note, I enjoy seeing product advertising related to cards (or in this case, pins), so had a look around...and I'll say, at least on a quick look, there doesn't seem to be much out there for Luxello. I found one small ad in an upstate NY newspaper from 1910, but that was all.

Like this? That would look nice as long as they're secure...

I was thinking of these, Ben. The top comes off, you place the pins (or whatever else) on the fluffy/firm padding, put top back on, and your stuff is held in place rather securely. Collectors use these for various things, as do museums for permanent storage.

Since the Luxellos picture only Phila AL/NL players could you deduce that it was a Philadelphia based cigar company that released the pins?

The look of the Luxellos is phenomenal, probably the most intricate design of any, but player selection is limited. I see the 1898 Cameo Pepsin pin set as the grandaddy of pins sets. Even more of a "crossover" set from the 19th to 20th century than E107 was.

Tidbit from Legendary's description of Luxellos...
The making of these pins was commissioned to the
Parisian Novelty Co. of Chicago, as fine-printed at the collet's bottom
edge; the items were crafted with no backpaper inserts.

This isn't all that exciting, but since it's the only thing I've found relating to Luxello advertising I thought I'd post anyway. From the Post-Standard, Syracuse NY, January 21, 1911:

While we're on the subject of pins, who can identify these toughies?



These were in a REA auction a few years back. The scan is nice because it also gives you an idea of their relative size (the Luxellos are much smaller than some might think based on the scan in the initial post)
