Excellent deck, albeit without joker, of the colorful "George Washington" cards, made c.1934 by American Playing Card Corporation of Portland, Maine. American Playing Card Corporation is a different company than American Playing Card Co. The Kings depict George Washington and have a "G" instead of "K" in the corners, while the Queens (with "M" instead of "Q") depict Martha Washington, and the Jacks depict laborers at various trades. It is a 52-card deck (no box, no joker), and the cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 58mm.
The cards are in excellent shape, almost "as new."
