    Description

    1888 N84A Duke & Sons "Playing Cards" Complete Set (53) With Joker Card. The tobacco card may have been a recent invention but playing cards was a time old tradition. Offered is a 52-card complete deck (or set) of Duke & Sons N84 "Playing Cards" produced in 1888. This set also includes a 53rd card - the scarce "Little Joker" card. Although you could easily play card games with these, this presentation escaped that fate and have survived the last 125 years in pretty nice overall condition.
