Hello again, this deck was manufactured by Russell Playing Card Co., New York, USA. According find out the W in the ace of spades indicates it was manufactured in 1916, 1936 or 1956. I think the third is far more accurate, but I'm not sure. someone knows the numbers mean, in the ace of spades as the joker?, and something to say about the tax stamp? (does't look like some I saw on Internet). Thanks any ways, and thank you for watch and read.

    Hello-I am no expert as I just started collecting myself, but that does not seem like a tax stamp. Rather it seems like a manufacturers seal. I would guess that these were manufactured shortly after the tax on playing cards was revoked (1965). I do not know how to be certain though..

    Oh, ok, thanks!, I am guided by the W, like I said, maybe the box was made after? I have no idea...and, from New York to Argentina...maybe that fact has something to do...any ways, thank you so much!

    I have a deck that sez K on the ace. What does that mean?

    This is the link where you can see the list of dates corresponding to the differents letters, if you have a K, acording to this list, it could be from 1907, 1928, 1948, 1968 or 1988.
