Russian Conjuring Cards

These cards were produced in 1928 by the Playing-card Monopoly.

They show the Russian standard pattern, but in a slightly smaller form than usual. A specialty (and that is why I call them conjuring cards) is an additional card (which is not shown) that can be transformed from a Jack of Spades to a Queen of Diamonds by turning over half of the card.

On all cards are two stamps, and I think that the text is 'on special order'.
