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.
