Very good deck of "Pyramid #100" playing cards made by Pyramid Playing Card Co., c.1926, with the new style court cards included in two variants of this deck, and with the usual two-corner indices. (Pyramid made a variant of this deck with indices in all four corners of the cards). It is a 52 card deck. I am not completely sure that it ever had a Joker, but if it did, the Joker is missing. There is no box. This is a wide deck, measuring 90mm x 63mm.
The cards are in good to very good condition. There is some fading to the ink on a number of the cards, including the King of Diamonds, and three cards (separately pictured) have specific issues: there is writing in pencil on the Ace of Hearts, and there are corner creases on the Ace of Hearts and the 2 of Spades.
The "new style" court cards in this deck are very beautiful.
