These deck of cards are interesting to me not because they are fancy, but rather because they are so plain.
The clean lines and basic design of the box, the very plain ace of spades and joker, the completely standard court, somehow make the shiny gold edges seem even richer!
The 10 cent tax stamp and the "J" code on the ace of spades put these at 1927.
I can find little if any info about these on the net. Googling "Bonus" playing cards wasn't very helpful.
Can anyone tell me anything about these?
