Like all of the PH. Gessert & Company products, this game is individually
hand made and therefore may have imperfections not found in a Parker Brothers game. However we are proud of the product
and because of it's price we hope it will encourage prople not that familiar with the game of Faro, to purchase it and learn
what once was the most popular gambling game in America.
