April 28



Today it was a race between two shipping lines for a winning place in the lockdown series. I came across two non-standard decks made by the Játékkátyagyar és Nyomda from Hungary, but both were published by Polish shipping lines. It was a close finish, but the Polish Steamship Company (P.Z.M. = Polska Zegluga Morska) did it just a little better than the Gdynia America Line. The deck dates from 1963. Simple line drawings, in which the suit symbols are incorporated, and a simple colour scheme on the courts and the 2 (similar) jokers. Plain aces. However, a not so often seen deck.
