This lot is offered again following its withdrawal from sale for a deal with an e-cheque buyer. The e-cheque failed to clear, even after 2 months, so I can offer this lot for sale once again.
The 2 cards are both rookies. They date circa 1927 to 1928. For dating Zaini, a firm which still makes chox today, the word CioccolatA is earlier type. Later cards have CioccolatO. These two cards show Achille Varzi, the Italian European champion motor racing driver BEFORE he took up his successful car racing career (in which he won most Grand Prix in Europe). Here, he is still in his motorcycle-racer career (in which he rode 7 TT Isle of Man races). He later drove with Bugatti, Alfa Romeo and Auto Union. These 2 rare cards are Italian, issued with chocolates before 1929. SOLD AS SEEN with faults as seen, creases and handling wear etc. Immensely rare cards!
