Charming double deck of patience cards made by ASS c.1950. The entry for these cards at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #05184) shows a joker, but there is no joker with either deck listed here. The courts are non-standard and very attractive.
Each deck has 52 cards; as noted, it is likely each deck had a joker at one time, but there are no Jokers with the set. The cards are patience size, measuring 65mm x 44mm, and come in the original "Patience" box. The cards are accompanied by a paper insert in German, with a description of certain patience games.
The cards are lightly used but in excellent condition. There is evidence of handling and edge wear. The paper insert is also in excellent lightly used condition. The box is in no better than very good condition, if that, structurally sound but with shelf wear, some soiling and a noticeable abrasion on the lid.
Thanks for visiting.
