    Here is on of my favorite decks, also from Russell Playing Cards. Unfortunately I it is missing the inner sleeve, and there are marks on the outer box from a deteriorated elastic band. However the cards themselves are in mint unplayed condition. The gold on the faces and the edges looks brand new and the colors are very nice! I don't have an exact date but I would guess sometime in the 20's or early 30's. Russell was acquired by USPC Co in 1929, but I guess some decks after that still just have the Russell name. Could anyone clarify that last point for me?
