"THE AMERICAN CARD CO. Confident that the introduction of NATIONAL EMBLEMS in place of Foreign." These are the first and only Genuine American cards ever produced.
The suits are EAGLES, SHIELDS, STARS, FLAGS, and GODDESS OF LIBERTY in place of Queen, COLONEL for King, MAJOR for Jack. Nice juxtaposition to those cards bearing Foreign emblems. A well-used set, complete with the jokers. There are several which have been used and repaired in the field! Wonderful and historic set.
