Wonderful deck of cards made by United States Playing Card Co. c.1950 (USPC #M1943) for Coca Cola, featuring a glamour girl illustration on the backs. The box has the remnant of the 1 pack tax stamp, used on cards from 1940-1965.
There are 52 cards, including a wonderful original Ace of Spades, plus 2 delightful original Coca Cola Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 59mm. They come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent, lightly used condition, except that there is a sizeable crease near one end of the Ace of Clubs (separately pictured). The box is in no better than good condition, if that. It still houses and protects the cards, but one top side flap is missing, there is a serious tear along one side, and there are other signs of age and wear to the box.
