De La Rue exportation ace. 1826
De La Rue. 3rd Design 1836. Exportation pack. 52 complete. Untouched might better describe its condition than unused! Exportation ace decks are much thinner on the ground than normal ace decks and this deck is in stunning condition, as crisp as the day they were made, Dating packs of this era can be a bit confusing as it reads HIS MAJESTY PATENT on the ace of spades. This refers to William the 4th and was left on all cards by specific command of Victoria for several years after she became queen as a tribute to her late uncle.
