Naipes INCA by C. Della Penna S.A.C.I. playing card manufacturer and publisher, Buenos Aires, c.1970

Naipes INCA was one of Della Penna's leading brands of Spanish type playing cards but also an Anglo-American edition was produced and used in advertising decks, as shown on these pages.

The motif on the Ace of spades is the same as in Naipes Guarany. The court cards are based on the designs of Piatnik, after Goodall. The company name is given as C. Della Penna S.A.C.I. and there is no tax stamp on the Ace of hearts which suggests a date of after 1968.

The court cards are based on the designs of Piatnik, after Goodall, and the Jokers were also used in later editions of Naipes Guarany and Naipes Congreso.
