Highlanders 1864 Reproduction Playing Cards

U.S. Games Systems, Inc. is proud to reproduce this important deck of playing cards from America’s past. The 1864 Poker Deck is faithfully reproduced from an authentic Civil War era Poker deck. As with the original 1864 Highlander deck, the cards in this 55-card deck have square corners. The deck has full-length, single-ended court cards. The box features a reproduction of the original tax stamps with hand cancellation dated June 2, 1864. The deck includes two informational cards, which provide a brief history of Early American Playing Cards. An additional card presents the original blue Ace of Spades with an eagle beneath 13 stars and the name L.I. Cohen on the bottom. Perfect for Civil War re-enactors and history buffs.

These poker size playing cards are published by US Games Systems and printed in Italy.

Blast from the past

Highlanders 1864 Reproduction are a fantastic addition to my growing vintage collection. I really enjoy using them for poker games and just for the novelty of them. I enjoy how they feel like I imagine they did during first print, maybe a bit stiffer. Out of my collection of vintage sets, this is my favorite due to the packaging alone. They don't have the gritty feel some other vintage repos have. I like the look of the backs as well, the artwork is something to be admired. Overall a nice deck well worth the price.

Another reproduction deck from USGS

This is one of several reproduction decks produced by US Games Systems, and I"m glad that they are bringing us these classic decks from the 1800s. However the card quality isn't as high as the reproduction decks produced by Home Run Games, which are typically printed by USPCC with an embossed air cushion finish. This deck is printed by USGS with unembossed and smooth cards that don't fan well, and are hard to shuffle. Even so, it's still nice as a collector's item. The artwork feels a little crude, but probably reflects accurately the original deck.

Excellent deck. The backs of the cards are beautiful. The court cards are great. The ace is wonderful. Love the detail.
