Here are the cards pictured in suits
Congrats!  That is also on my wishlist, but I doubt I will be pursuing it for price reasons unless I can find a damaged or incomplete deck like you did.  That's really all most people are able to or willing to get some of these classic antique decks which are in very short supply.  Great find either way, even if it is 52-J!  ;)
And here are some early R&M Steamboats with the two-color courts.  No joker, though.
A Cellar of Fine Vintages / Aristocrat Allover No. 7
« Last post by Chuqii on Yesterday at 11:00:20 AM »
There is an old thread on PCF ( that mentions that there are Aristocrat back designs other than the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, but I've never seen one or been able to find any images, until now.  Just picked up an Aristocrat Allover No. 7 deck c.1944 (see pics).  So I guess there are backs No. 4, No. 5 and No.6, maybe more.  Does anyone have any of those decks or info about the Nos. 4+ Aristocrat backs?  If so, please post.  Love to see the mystery deck backs.
Looking for book.
I just recently had the chance of acquiring my most treasured deck since I started collecting. Who you might ask, well the Hustling Joe transformation cards.

 About the cards, it is a complete deck except for missing joker  :(  plus there is no box. Finding a complete deck those were minor setbacks to a treasured find. They are dated 1895 i believe these are first edition because there is no border on the court cards. Even though the second edition was printed the same year.

if you would like to see specific ones just let me know for close-ups of singles otherwise I will be posting pics shortly of them all.

video review:

VIEWS Playing Cards are a luxury, illusion-themed deck of cards created for cardists and magicians alike.

Manufactured by The United States Playing Card Company. Traditionally-cut and printed on crushed Bee® stock, a dream feel for any card handler.

No expense was spared to create this unique deck of cards. The box is crafted out of a synthetic soft-touch paper for a unique luxury feel. It is surrounded by the mind-bending illusion hot-stamped in white and mint foil. “VIEWS PLAYING CARDS” is embossed and hot-stamped with gold and white foil.

 The cards are designed from scratch and 100% custom. The back design features the motion-like bending VIEWS dots with a mint undertone to create the illusion. The face cards have custom pips, and the courts have Pantone metallic inks.

Designed by Yves Krähenbühl
