with out a doubt one of the rarest items I have ever came across . Original pre 1964 Death From Above Special Forces playing cards ( Death cards) , complete deck with jokers , original box . before this I have only found two  death cards ever . never a whole deck

vsf066.jpg (540014 bytes)  

I found this deck on John O'Conner's web site , I felt I needed to keep this deck together and not let some one purchase it and sell off the cards individually . each card sells for over 100 dollars and the ace of spades and the jokers sell for three times that . These belong in a museum . I read the story of these years ago and one of the soldiers relations worked for the card factory and ordered an unknown amount . I know of no other complete decks out there , if you have one let me know . I had heard that years ago there were 10 decks brought back and sold to collectors , the solders used them for playing cards and as Death Cards on KIA NVA and VC
