WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT 1864 POKER DECK
This is a real sturdy and attractive deck for professional readings. The card stock is nice and thick; these are not fragile cards. Fortunately, for they are very handsome! Historical decks have a special place in my world, and I recommend this deck highly for its appeal both visually, historically, and its versatility.
What I find especially appealing visually are the gold foil outlines on all the cards; each pip and court card has a striking amount of bling. Card corners are not rounded. Notice that the cards do not bear indices in the corners: there is no '6' on the six of clubs, no 'A' on the Ace, etc. While for certain styles of gaming that may prove inconvenient, I find that it does not encumber most types of games that I play, and for divination it poses no problem whatsoever. Additionally, the court cards feature full-bodied people rather than the standard mirror-image, two-headed figures in modern playing cards.
Since I use the same cards for gaming as divination, I find these cards to be off my shelf repeatedly for either a game or a reading.

I just received the cards, and I am very impressed with the quality of the reproduction of the artwork, as well as the stock and finish. It mimics the card stock that was used in the historical deck as well as the artwork.
Also, the information card is very informative, and adds to the card's overall appeal. This deck is just all around a great replica deck.

My boyfriend commented that he always wanted some Old West style playing cards while we were watching Westworld, so I ordered them as a surprise while we finished the episode. He loves them. Very cool cards.
