Description

This particular deck is my significant other's personal copy of the "standard" Rider Waite deck from U.S. Games, with the 1971 copyright on the cards.

Cards are 12 cm tall x 7 cm wide.

We have no box and no title card or LWB with this copy. We do, however, have one blank card with it. It is housed in a green faux suede drawstring bag that I hand-sewed for it.

It is in good shape, but has edge wear -- you can tell it has been used and shuffled, though no cards are dog-eared or bent.

Most likely printed in the 1980s; he purchased it used in the 1990s.

Suits are Swords, Cups, Pentacles, and Wands.

Strength is 8 and Justice is 11.

Court names are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

Art is fully scenic, and card backs are a reversible plaid pattern.
