      Hey Miguel @chorolekiam,

      The information below can be found here:

      For some time, there also was a stamp for tax-free playing cards. To the left is a stamp that was in use by the U.S. military c. 1946. Below are two examples of USPC playing card decks provided to the U.S. Government for military use in the mid-fifties. In the center is an enlargement of the tax-free stamp (all three images courtesy of Lee Asher from his informative article “The White Label” in Issue No. 13 of CARD CULTURE). Lee has since sent me some additional images of two League back Bicycle decks from his collection that also feature the white tax-free stamp, below.

      Hope this helps 🙂

      Someone knows how much this deck cost?

      I think there’s not enough of these in the market to determine a set value based on condition and everything. So at this point in time, I would say about the same or slightly higher value as the other tax stamp cards.

      That’s a great deck.

      It’s not a tax stamp, so that puts the deck after 1965.  The L code could be 1969, 1989 or 2009.

      My guess is 1969 as by 1989 the USPCC was well into their blue seal standard.
