Hi,

My wife's grandfather recently passed away. He had a few decks of old cards, and I happened to be flipping thru them and noticed that one deck was in some kind of stack order. I'm not familiar with many stacks, so I thought I'd see if you knew what this is:

AC 3C 5C 7C 9C JC KC 2C 4C 6C 8C TC QC
8H TH QH AH 3H 5H 7H 9H JH KH 2H 4H 6H
2S 4S 6S 8S TS QS AS 3S 5S 7S 9S JS KS
9D JD KD 2D 4D 6D 8D TD QD AD 3D 5D 7D

I have shown them in CHSD order, but the actual order is from top to bottom and left to right by 7's. The stack starts with the AC then 8H then 2S then 9D then 3C then Ten of Hearts and so on, with the second to bottom card the KS and lastly the 7D. I hope I've explained this well enough. Any help identifying the stack would be appreciated.

Try doing some antifaros with Stackview to see if it is possible to get into it with inner faroes. It might just be a stack for poker deals or something or a memorized order that he made or a system to the cards.

I've noticed just now that the cards go by 7s and in CHaSeD order, sort of a variant on Si Stebbins.

It is Si Stebbins Stack with difference of 7. Although the normal Si Stebbins Stack is with difference of 3, but Si Stebbins himself had used the one with difference of 4.
