I recently bought a deck out of curiosity. The box has a big picture of an eagle on the front. I wanted to know the company and it said cartamundi. On the ace was eagle brand sinc 1765. Older than U.S. Playing Card CO I think. The flap to the box was flat unlike many of U.S.P.C.'s boxes. Anyway the eagle confused me because that does not sound english and eagle makes me think american. Anyway I am not language expert but it sounded latin. I put it in google translator and it showed the same.

I then looked at the jokers, they looked like Cadaco so I got a Cadaco deck. Looked at the jokers and I was right. The funny thing was it even had a jocker holding a giant king of hearts as in a magic deck. In looking through it though I noticed the ace had the same word only as two. It was carta mundi rather than cartamundi. I put that in and it came out charter of the world.

The eagle deck no indication of cadaco but the jokers they must be conected somehow. The finish was better than cadaco but not quality. It wasn't air flow, air cusion, or the one Bee's use, nor any other that I could think of and it did not say. The way the cards are cut is about the same as cadaco. The paper is probably between the stifness between Bicycle and Bee.

I don't think these are Jardin corperation but am curious about this deck. Just something to keep myself ocupied.

Cartamundi is a world-wide manufacturer of playing cards (and many other items) and now have a facility in Dallas, Texas. I think they may have originated in Belgium, but I'm not positive. Here is a link to the Eagle cards from the Dallas site. They have websites from various countries if you do some searching. They have many card lines and do a lot of specialty decks also.
