This means you won’t be able to use the covert markings to read any diamond card selected with accuracy.
All the other markings are fine, functional and unaffected. Just Ace to King of diamonds.
If you weren’t using these primarily as a marked deck, then you won’t notice the difference.
They still handle incredibly well and were printed on our new, sought-after E7 stock. Luxury in a box.
MichaelThe cards feel great and the ace of spades has a nice gaffed version that can be played to humerus effect. The inclusion of a double-backer is also always appreciated. This gives me an overall good impression of the deck.
Unfortunately, the marking system has a couple of flaws to it. The first is that the diamonds are marked in reverse order. This isn't too hard to mentally reverse, but is a bit disappointing to find. The other is that the marks do appear somewhat obvious. I don't know whether this is because I knew that they are there and so was easily able to spot them or if they're truly so obvious. I may have to run these through a social card game to see if anyone spots them to be sure.
