I picked these playing cards up at a local garage sale, as I am nuts about playing cards (to play with, regardless of what the design is). I thought the Eagle seal was cool, but didn't even bother looking at the cards. Then, when I got home and sat down to count all the cards and really feel if they were played-out or not, I saw that the cards themselves were the coolest thing! 

 

They were obviously a give-away from the Lafayette Machine & Tool Co., in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The cards themselves have the "Buy War Bonds" logo in colour on them! I've never seen these before and was really happy at the find! Thought I'd share these, in case someone else would enjoy seeing! :)

Yep, these are neat.

 

Who knows what is hiding in the closets and game rooms across America!
