Mint, sealed (cards, not box) double deck of wonderful cards made by ASS c.1978, celebrating the City of Munich, including its historical figures, buildings and famous men. The four Aces are coats of arms. I have elected not to break the wrappers on these cards, but the faces can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #03276).
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 3 Jokers. The cards are accompanied by a pamphlet in German that describes the games of Rummy and Canasta. The cards are slightly large bridge size, measuring 91mm x 59mm, and they come in the original plastic box, inside a sleeve.
The cards are mint and sealed, and the booklet is “as new.” The plastic box has cracks (shown in one of the pictures). The sleeve is clean, but with shelf wear at the edges.
