Beautiful deck of Congress 606 playing cards, made by United States Playing Card Co., c.1926 (H1642), with a colorful and attractive geometric pattern on the backs. The backs of many Congress 606 cards frequently have a title, but this pattern does not. The Ace of Spades still references Russell & Morgan Factories.
The deck has 52 cards, but is missing its Joker. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, with gorgeous gold gilt around. There is no box.
The cards are in superb condition, "as new" or very nearly so, with all of the gold gilt intact.
