Highlander's 1864 Replica Poker Playing Card Deck - Vintage Style
Reproduction of a Civil War era poker deck with full-length, single-ended court figures. Box reproduced with original tax stamps showing hand cancellation June 2, 1864. Decks used during the Civil War did not have corner indices. So the "Number" cards do not show numbers, just suits. This unique deck comes with a reproduction of L.I. Cohen's original ace of spades, as well as a more standard one.
This deck is great for history lovers, poker buffs or those who just love to collect or look at antiques. It is a faithful reproduction of the same deck that was released by the L. I. Cohen Company of New York in the days of Abraham Lincoln.
A must have for every collector. It may be a replica deck, but it will probably be as close as you will ever get to the real thing!
- Includes a history of early American playing cards and the company that released the deck
