C-1880's SPLENDID PLUG TOBACCO PLAYING CARDS - American Playing Card
Co. for P. Lorillard & Co. tobacco firm. All 52 cards and 1 Joker - no box. All the
information I was able to receive on this deck was that these were issued in the
1880's and the
only set for sale was at nearly $400. This particular set came in a
trunk that had the personal items of a Civil War soldier from the 123rd Indiana
Infantry - obviously obtained after the War. Very good condition though one card
has a small tear.
$ 185.
