Introduced in 1892. Discontinued in 1943. This
attractive back design had a very long run. Easily found in red or blue, at least in later issues,
but quite rare in green and brown. The only example I have seen in US8aa is a 32 card euchre deck (without
a box). Safety was evidently produced as some sort of music deck; I have one single with a musical note
on it instead of a conventional face card (see the image below).
