Spanish Cadiz-style pack

Traditional Spanish Cadiz-style pack manufactured by Müller & Cie, Schaffhausen, 1952

Demand in Spanish-speaking and ex-colonial countries for such cards, for use in casinos, was attractive not only to Spanish manufacturers, but also to foreign makers, who regularly produced cards for the Philippines, North Africa and Latin & South America

The designs of the cards are based on an earlier prototype published by C.L. Wüst of Frankfurt/Main. The Wüst star can still be seen on the Ace of coins.
