The pattern of today's deck will probably be known by a lot of collectors. It's titled "Historical" and has been printed and published by the Colour Printing Plant from St. Petersburg between the 1920's and 2002. The designs of the courts and aces have basically been the same throughout the decades, but there are a few differences. The early editions were printed in chromolithography and have a different joker. Today's deck is one of those and it dates from around 1930.
