Whist Pack from Germany

This pack was produced c. 1870, most probably by some German maker. It has a tax stamp from Hamburg on the Ace of Hearts that was in use 1863 to 1874. I do not think that the cards were made in Hamburg.

The design of the court cards is that of the upper pack shown on the Pattern Sheet [IPCS #77], and there you can read more about this standard pattern.
