Today's lockdown deck is meant to lighten up your day….. literally. It's an advertising deck for OSRAM light bulps, that was printed by the Vereinigte Stralsunder Spielkartenfabriken Abt. Altenburg, Germany, and published there around 1925. Courts may look the same, but there are small differences between each of them. Pip cards have small illustrations, different in each denomination. This is the present deck. We had the deck before, but it was in worse condition than this. So we changed the decks and sold the previous one on eBay. The last scan is from that deck, same pip cards, but with a different back.
