In 1885 Edmund Goldsmid, resident of Edinburgh, assisted in the reproduction of a set of Playing cards used by Admiral Lord Nelson.
This tasks was undertaken by the Aungervyle Society of Edinburgh and the Clarendon Historical Society as the expense, for small societies, needed to be shared.
This is the first Victorian reproduction of a pack of playing cards.
The pack owned by Nelson was short of two cards, the Three and Ace of Hearts – these were supplied from another source for the purpose of this reproduction.
This pack was produced in very limited card format and are scarce to find especially in the original box.
