They are the early wide cards with very detailed one way courts. This is the oldest US made deck I have ever owned! Dougherty decks made in the mid-1860s to 1870s often have two way courts. This deck is early 1860s and features Doughertys beautiful one way courts. The condition is good for its age.
The cards are heavily soiled and used just like a Civil War deck should be. A few cards are missing corners or have small tears from use. The two of diamonds is missing from the deck, but otherwise it is complete. Dont miss this amazing historical deck of cards.
