Excellent set of Dougherty’s “Radbridge” brand playing cards, made c.1927. At this time, Dougherty was operated as a separate company by USPC, but the Ace of Spades in this deck has a USPC # (i.e., J5413) and so can be reliably dated to that year.
The deck has 52 cards, plus the Radbridge Joker, plus a Dougherty standard Extra Joker, plus a Dougherty card with auction bridge scoring (revised to 1926) on one side and 500 scoring on the other. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm. There is no box.
The cards are in “as new” condition, somewhat surprising since there is no box.
