Playing cards manufactured by A.S.S. for the Estanco de Naipes del Peru, 1950s

Above: Bosco playing cards manufactured in Germany by A.S.S. expressly for the Estanco de Naipes del Perú, 1950s. The legend "Estanco de Naipes del Perú" is printed on the box, ace of spades, and reverse.

Below: detail from the box and the Estanco logo from the back of the cards. It is curious that the phrase "Made expressly for the" is printed in English and not Spanish or German, and that the phrase "by The ASS Playing Card Ltd" has omitted the word "Company".
