    • I see them on Ebay & Bonanza (probably the same seller). The listing says, “Russell Morgan Army Navy Limited Edition 100th Anniversary Playing Cards 2 Decks”. One is red the other is blue in a blue and red case. It doesn’t say the year though. According to Wikipedia, One of the first five brands of cards introduced by the company in 1881, when it was still known as Russell, Morgan, and Co., Army and Navy were originally two separate brands although they shared the same two stock numbers: their standard No. 303 and the deluxe No. 505 which had gold edges. The two brands were then merged into the single Army & Navy brand in 1884. True to the name, the Joker and Ace of Spades of these brands tended to feature American military imagery, which changed over the years of its production.
