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
- Single-ended court figures
- Traditional non-indexed styling
- Includes 52 cards with no jokers
- Perfect deck for any Civil War re-creator or reenactment
In the US the standard names for the size of decks would be "Bridge" or "Poker". Both of these decks can be used for most card games. The only real difference would be that the "Bridge" size decks are 1/4" narrower than "Poker". Otherwise they can be used for pretty much anything. Please read the description of this item for more information.
This has to do with the actual size of a deck of cards, not really whether or not tradional games can be played with it or not. While here in the US we call most decks either "Poker" or "Bridge" size, most of the rest of the world would call them either "Wide" or "Narrow", respectivily.
Many times the "narrow" decks were intended for ladies or children because it was easier for them to handle. While the "narrow" are considered the standards size in most of the world, here in the US the "wide" are considered the standard size.
Please check actual description of the product to see if normal card games can be played with this particular product.
