Vintage deck of KEM playing cards in the Florence pattern with red on back side. I also have the red deck available if you’re interested. This listing is only for the red deck.
You’ll receive the complete 52 card deck, plus 2 jokers, plus 1 additional re-order card to use in the event a replacement card is needed for a lost or damaged card. There’s also a little pamphlet with info about the company. The deck comes in it’s original hard plastic case.
All cards are in ‘like new’ condition with no rips, bends, writing, or smudges.
As for the date of the set, per online History of Playing Cards, regarding the date of manufacturing, it says:
“There's a three or four digit code on all their Aces of Spades. The last two digits are the year of manufacture and the other digits are the month.”
All KEM playing cards state a copyright date of 1935, but the three digit manufacturing code on this deck is 177 which would translate to January 1977.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail Package delivery charges of $5.95. Delivery is from Arizona.
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based on weight and zip code. Now, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This year's increases have added an additional 1.36 cents to up to $4.03 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. Paypal will not be accepted on International orders. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
