Excellent set of cards made by United States Playing Card Co. c.1949 (USPC #L1940) for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, with backs depicting a map showing the routes that were traveled by the B&O at that time.
The deck has 52 cards, plus 1 Joker, plus 2 contract bridge scoring cards that can be used as Extra Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, with silver gilt around, and they come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent lightly used condition, with approximately 30% - 50% of the gilt remaining. The box is in good, perhaps very good, condition, structurally sound and with a clean sample card, but with wear to the front and sides.
