Wonderful deck of cards made by Coeur c.1950, featuring backs with a map of Antigua and beautiful scenic Aces, not with scenes of Antigua, but depicting some of the most famous sites in the world (Statue of Liberty, Sphinx, Eiffel Tower, etc.). The Aces are double ended and there is a different scene at each end of each Ace – 8 altogether. Except for the Aces, the cards are Standard English Pattern (or International Pattern, if you like). It is an early Coeur deck.
The deck has 52 cards, plus a Joker. The cards are on thick stock, measuring 88mm x 58mm. They come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent condition, lightly used if at all. The box is missing its two top side flaps, and there is a tear to the top flap and some wear at a number of places.
Thanks for visiting.
