I found this cool double deck of KEM Pinochle playing cards in a plastic holder. I have a few questions for someone who is more knowledgeable than I am. Does the design on the back have a name? I looked up KEM cards and found names like Club Back, Star Gazer, Arrow, Paisley, Jacquard, Florentine etc., but never found a name for this particular pattern.
The date number C140 - does the 'C' stand for Cadet Size? They are the same size as the regular Bridge Set - 2.25" X 3.5" And I am guessing that the 140 means January 1940, but the dating on some of these card decks is a bit confusing.
The last question regards the box - I keep seeing it called bakelite everywhere but it seems to be just some sort of plastic instead. Thanks in advance for any info.
