Antique Playing Cards No Indices 1880 Old West Post Civil War Full Deck!
- Source: eBay
Very nice old complete deck of playing cards from the 1880s/1890s time period. They have no numbers or indices in the corners. The cards are on very thick cardboard-like paper with a small star pattern back. Made in Belgium.They ARE NOT reproduction cards! I guarantee that they are from the 1800s! They are from a cache of unused decks that were discovered in an European warehouse in the late 1960s. They are "new old stock" because they were kept in the wrapper unused for over 100 years. These are in beautiful condition with the original wrapper. The only damage is to the wrapper. It has yellowed, somewhat brittle, and has torn in places. The cards themselves look like new. See pictures.
