DKH10: Handa. Nr.32. Ca.1945-50. 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. 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.
DKH11: Handa. Nr.717. Ca. 1965. Price: € 4.00. .
