Since the end of the monopoly of the Real Fábrica de Naipes de Macharaviaya (Spain) in 1815, there have been a number of importing agents, as well as manufacturers from other countries, who have imported playing cards into Argentina. These include Fló Hnos. y Cía, Casa Jacobo Peuser Ltda, Julio Laje and Bertrand Domec . In general, and until 1968, these imported packs show the brown or orange Argentinean importation tax stamp "Impuestos Internos" on the ace of hearts for Anglo-american style decks, or on the four of cups in Spanish-suited packs, as illustrated in the examples shown below.
