The Conjuring Arts Research Center has a project underway to catalog backs from the early USA makers. Also Jackson Robinson is working on a major project called the Card Guild which is attempting to build a database of old USPC decks including the backs for each brand.

These are huge undertakings and Judy and I have agreed to add whatever knowledge and information we have to these projects. It would be a great idea Cryptocard if you could contact Bill Kalush at CARC and Jackson and offer to add your knowledge and information to their efforts.

I wish to combine in an article or a booklet, most of the backs which were used by several us playing card makers.

While I am new to collecting, I am a museum studies grad who loves historical research. Please let me know if you ever need help researching something.

Best of luck with your project.

It is not a Bee deck but the second back (Shield) of the Helmet #119 deck, pictured in the Hochman Encyclopedia p. 102. I have one copy in my collection, pictured below, with the other back (Helmet).

norsk - Yes, I tried to look up their regs, it looks like 1841 is still antique so that is what I am trying to do - find somebody down under who can ship:
Going to their boards seems like a great idea, thank you
Would you happen to know their boards website?
