Very attractive deck of Congress 606 playing cards, made by United States Playing Card Co., c.1926 (H1686), with "The Flight" backs, depicting geese in flight. The Ace of Spades still references Russell & Morgan Factories.
The deck has 52 cards, plus the Congress 606 Joker, plus a Guarantee card. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, with gold gilt around, and come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent used condition, with perhaps 75% of the gold gilt remaining. The box is in very good condition, with minimal wear at the corners of the outer box, except that the sample card is stained/soiled.
