1944 DATED WORLD WAR TWO US MILITARY RED CROSS PLAYING CARDS:  These decks of standard playing cards were given to the soldiers in the forward areas, hospitals, and rest centers as a form of recreation, and provided in at least two formats: this regular 52 card deck and the special pinochle 48 card decks as well a popular card game in the first half of the 20th Century. 

This packet of regular playing cards is dated Feb. 4, 1944, well before the Normandy invasion.  The packet is complete with the correct cards and suits with all 52 cards present plus the Joker cards, and in fact, the deck of cards is still sealed in the original cellophane wrapper.  As with most of the decks of these cards, the outer box shows some shelf or box wear, however the deck of cards is in literally "like new" condition and was never unwrapped.       

Not commonly found, this is an unusual piece to add to your WWII GI display or a WWII Medical Corps display.  (0910)  $30
