C. E. ALBERT DECK OF cums Filed Jan. 12, 1929 mvENTbn 6%) BY K M ATTORNEYj Patented Sept. 10, 1929.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

CLIFFORD E. ALBERT, F CINCINNATI, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO THE UNITED STATES PLAYING CARD COMPANY, OF NORWOOD, OHIO, A CORPORATION OF OHTO.

DECK OF CARDS.

Application filed January 12, 1929. Serial No. 332,160.

This invention relates to card decks for playing games and particularly to playlng cards.

The object of the invention to to provide a deck of cards, the edges of which are so marked that it is immediately observable should one of the cards in the deck become turned with its face reversed.

Other objects and further advantages will be more fully set forth in a description of theaccompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the left hand edge of the deck of cards.

Figure 2 is a perspective view showing the left hand edge of the deck of cards with one card turned face down in the deck.

Figure 3 is a perspective view showing the right hand edge of the deck of cards with one card turned face down in the deck.

The deck of cards 10 of this invention is provided with marked or colored opposite edges, for instance, side edges. These opposite edges are varyingly and reversely marked so that a card withits face reversed in the deck is immediately detectable. The upper half of each edge is colored differently from or to contrast with thelower half of each edge, and also, the upper half of each edge is colored differently from or to contrast with the upper half of the opposite edge. But each half of each edge is colored to correspond with the diagonally opposite half edge. Otherwise expressed, the lower half of the left hand edge is colored to correspond with the upper half of theright hand edge. and the upper half of the left hand edge is colored to correspond with the lower half of the right hand edge.

In this way, the cards can be turned in any way desirable in the deck as long as the faces are all in the same direction, and the edges appear as they do in Figure 1. If, on the other hand, a card should be turned face up, i. e., reversely in the deck, then each edge of the deck shows the error since an edge colored in one fashion becomes adjacent to the edges dissimilarly colored. This is illustrated in Figures 2 and 3.. This arrangement permits the dealer to immediately detect a card turned face up and to single it out in the deck.

As disclosed, the lowerhalf 11 of the left hand edge'and the upper half 11 of the right hand edge may be colored green, red, blue, or some similar color, the color green being shown on the drawing. The remainder of each edge, as disclosed at 12, is white though some other color can be used if desirable. Instead of solid color different color designs can be used so long as the absence of symmetry is observed between the upper and lower half of each edge and the upper halves of the opposite edges or lower halves of the opposite edges. I

For instance, it may be desirable to provide a card with a rainbow edge, that is, an

edge in which the color is varied from red at the top to violet at the bottom. The opposite edge would on the other hand start with violet at the top and graduate to red at the bottom. If any card in the deck became turned face down it would be immediately observable by glancing at the edge since this card would show violet in the red and blue in the orange near one extremity, and red in the violet and orange in the blue near the other extremity. Obviously, any combination of colors can be used and various modifications of this general scheme can be worked out according to the taste and. skill of the designer following this invention.

Having described my invention. I desire to be limited only by the following claims:

1. A deck of cards provided with colored edges, the upper left hand edge being colored to correspond with the lower righthand edge, the lower left hand edge being colored to correspond withthe upper right band edge, but the upper left hand edge being colored to contrast with the lower left hand edge.

2. A deck of cards, each edge of which is colored differentially from top to bottom, the arrangement of colors on each edge being the reverse of that on the opposite edge from top to bottom. i

In witness whereof, I hereunto subscribe my name. I I CLIFFORD E. ALBERT.
