DKH10a: Handa. Nr.32. 1945-49. Price: € 3.00. This deck is ready for discarding. BUT: The first deck from Handa came in 1944, and this is the second/third version from ca.1945-50. Simple colouring. Queen of Hearts with dark hair, AND the King of Cubs with an axe, instead of the later sceptre. 51 cards+ joker, King of Hearts missing, no box. VERY VERY much dirty, broken and with rifts, – but funny/interesting: The deck has been “shaved”, i.e. sent for rejuvenation, where the corners and edges have been “shaven” clean. Therefor the rounded, irregular shape.
DKH10b1: Handa, Nr.32. 1945-49. Pink reverse. Price: € 10.00. Same deck as DKH10a. Much used but basically OK. 54 cards, complete, with the two jokers, of which one is blank. In box with no lid. DKH10b2: Blue reverse. Price: € 11.00. Same deck, but the box still has its lid.

DKH18: Standard pattern. 1956. Price: € 10.00. Mint or very slightly used deck. 52 cards, 1 joker, no box. Delightful advertisement for “Golden Slippers”. Could it perhaps be a jubilee for The West Virginia Ramblers who in 1931 recorded “Oh Dem Golden Slippers” in Richmond?
DKH19a: Royal Playing Cards. L’Hombre. Nr.150. Ca. 1950. Price: € 5.00. The similar whist deck is not common, and this L’Hombre version is quite rare, but in rather used condition, so the price is low. 40 cards, complete, in worn BLUE box without lid. Pips: A, K, Q, J.

DKH25: Bridge Club Playing Cards. No.144. ca.1955. Price: € 6.00. This deck with no box misses K, Q, Jack of Hearts, so the price may seem high, – but the back pattern No.144 is very unusual. Apart from the deck in my own collection, I have never seen it before. Slightly used cards, 2 jokers.
DKH27: The Star Card. No.413. Ca.1960. Price: € 6.00. Used deck, blackened along the outer edges..Two jokers. Worn but unusual box, with no lid. The important thing however: The figures here are slightly unusual. Normally they were only used with the “Tourist Series”.

DKH37: Bridge. No.49. 1950s. Price: € 12.00. The second generation of the Handa standard picture. No.49 is somewhat rare, probably because many of them were used with an advertising back like this one Used deck. The 3 of Diamonds has been repaired. 52 cards + 1 blank card. A joker is missing. Badly damaged box.
