Wild Bill

Deadmans hand. Ok I get that there seems to be a huge debate on what cards Wild Bill was really holding. But what I would be interested in is were those cards indexed? Either by small letters and numbers "squezzers". Or larger numbers more like today's cards.

You should have probably put this in Cafe or Game instead.

Reported for forum change.

This allegedly is James Butler Hitchcock's actual poker hand, framed on the wall of a Deadwood, SD saloon. The cards are marked only by the suit spots without any numbers.
