Wondering if my fellow card-lovers can help me identify some specifics about this tiny deck of cards. Stamp is lovely and looks like hand-work. Paper feels old, and font-style has a 50's-era look.

This may not be special at all, but just curious and thought it might be worth asking. Found in an antique shop.

Photos are viewable in a Dropbox gallery here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6z257xlpq4goc......his-deck

And I'll try to upload some directly to the forum, momentarily.

It's about 2.75-inches long; dark blue box says "Playtime Playing Cards" and "Made in U.S.A." on the front. Bottom of box says "The U. S. Playing Card Co. Cincinnati, U.S.A.". Top/lid of box has a USPCC seal that *looks* like a postage stamp -- a little off center, like it may have been packed by hand?

My photos are too big for the forum, it appears. Try the dropbox link for now.

No USIR stamp, so I would think post 1965.

I have a similar deck from the 1970's, but it's an ultra-mental deck.
