This beautiful deck of 32 German playing cards that dates from before World War II is still in its original box. We have no idea what game was played with these cards as they are like nothing we have ever seen before. The box says “Altenburger Salon-Karte Nr. 148, Sachs. Doppelbild, 32 Blatt, Vereinigte Spielkarenfabriken A.G. Altenburg, Thur.” The deck is complete, containing 32 cards (or Blatt) as stated on the box. Internet research suggests that this is a rare deck both because it is in the original box and because the ace of hearts has the Reich tax stamp on it which was only used for 5 years. The set is in excellent condition. The cards are crisp and fresh with no creases, bent or damaged corners. Several cards have very minor remnants of dirt or possibly stray ink that was deposited during production of the cards. The card box is in good condition although there is some splitting and weakening of the corners and edges. There is also some minor dirt on the box. The cards all measure 4 1/4 inches by 2 ½ inches. Look closely at the designs on these cards. They are stunning. This is a wonderful set that will be a worthy addition to anybody’s card collection.
