Wonderful souvenir deck made by Hudson Industries, featuring scenic photographs of Australia in 1940. The backs show a koala bear on a eucalyptus tree “growing out of” the Australian continent.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 1 “Joker,” plus 3 additional cards akin to jokers; all 56 cards have scenic images. The cards are bridge size, measuring 88mm x 58mm, and come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent condition, and it does not appear that they have been used, although the card stock used is unfinished and not a particular high grade. The box is structurally sound and reasonably clean, but with notable wear, especially at the corners and edges; for a 75-year old box, I would describe the condition as very good.
Thanks for visiting.
