The Triton No.42 brand was first introduced by the N.Y. Consolidated Card Co. in around 1890 as one of their more expensive brands and part of their Squeezer range, with perfect slip. The cards were advertised as double enamelled. There have been at least three different versions of the Triton deck, with different Jokers, different styles of court cards and slight differences in the lettering on the Ace of Spades and/or Joker. Triton is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He is usually represented as a merman, having the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish, as seen here on the Ace of Spades and Joker. Triton cards were aimed to be preferred by the leading clubs and Army and Navy.
