Recently I found these 1901 playing cards (photos attached) with the writing "the forbidden city pekin & chinese views souvenir playing cards copyright 1901 by grimes-stassforth stationary co, los angeles, cal".
As it is there are all 52 cards but no joker, leaflets or information cards.
After researching I found these two links:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOS-ANGELES-SOUVENIR-playing-cards-RARE-1901-THE-FORBIDDEN-CITY-AMAZING-VIEWS-/253124206547?ul_noapp=true&nma=true&si=3cfKa7ZA2wxvMezwVMyOYqjfyqw%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 (sold for $588.88 but with joker and information card)
https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/forbidden-city-china-boxer-rebellion-1810705296 (unhelpful in terms of valuation but interesting for information)
I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me advice on firstly the valuation of this deck but also where I might be able to sell it (or should I keep it and wait until the value increases?)
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
