Andrew Dougherty’s Army & Navy deck from the Civil War era, c.1865. The cards have no indices and are printed in red/blue/black only with a green/red back pattern.
The Joker is particularly persuasive, whilst the Ace of Spades has a battle scene involving artillery, with Navy ships in the distance and the statue of the goddess of Freedom in the middle.
