Cards, Playing, Gaigel
Scarce genuine US pack of Gaigel playing cards, complete, in its original cardboard packaging. First intended for German emigrants, this type of deck appeared in the United States in the late 19th century. The German flag (on cardboard) and Prussian Eagle (on the back of cards) appear along with the US flag. The Gaigel denomination was patented by The United States Playing Cards Co. in 1905.
This superb deck of cards was manufactured prior to the First World War.
