DKS10: Tarok. Version 2 (Queen of Spades is the different one). L. P. Holmblad. 1852-61. Price: € 50.00. Square corners. Incomplete deck. There are the 9 shown court cards + 2 aces, and the picture cards I-III, V, IX-XVI, XVIII-XXI + 27 number cards. Yellowed but in good condition. No box.
DKS14: Tarok. No.108. S. Salomon & Co. Before 1905. Price: € 20.00. Incomplete deck with the 12 shown court cards, plus picture cards nos. 1-3, 5-10, 12-21,- and 18 number cards. It seems as if two decks are mixed.
DKS21: Pattern A, No.121. 1937-. Price: € 15.00. Quite a dirty deck, burt also a bit rare. Printed in England for only a few years. With a linen structure, and with the use of only black, blue and red colours. No box.
DKS23: Whist & Bridge: No.114. Price: € 6.00. Unused deck in box. 2 jokers, complete. Printed by Coeur, East Germany.
DKS24: Whist. No.102. Ca.1920. Price: € 120.00. Printed by Wüst. This rather rare deck comes in several variations. The main difference here, is that the producers name is with the Jack of Diamonds (instead of Clubs), and that it is outside the borders. Quite coarse material. Yellowed and used and somewhat dirty, but basically very nice after 100 years. The box is worn, but complete.
DKS31: Pattern B. “7016 – 7017”. Ca.1910. Price: € 40.00. 48 cards only (no aces). Worn. In nice box. This is the first known (to me) advertising deck from Denmark. Advertising for an advertising company “Sylvester Hvid”.
DKS32: Pattern B. Whist. No.102. Ca.1920. Price: € 10.00. Similar to DKS24. Incomplete, only 44 cards + torn joker. Of the court cards the King and Jack of Spades, the King of Diamonds and the King and Queen of Hearts are missing, no box. Five cards are torn.
DKS44: Version. . Price: € 3 . Much worn and dirty, with breaks and bends in corners. Four of Hearts is missing. No box.
DKS100:. Price: € 4 . Three singles. Probably printed by Genechten, Belgium. Clean and unused. Quite rare.
DKS101:. Price: € 4 . Nine singles. 8 courtcards + five of clubs. Vey dirty and worn. But rare!
DKS120: Tarok. Ca.1918. Price: € 100.00. Blå ryg. Kom første gang ca.1905. Version med jugendstilmønster på ryggen, og versionen med modstillet Salomon – Holmblad på klør knægt. Godt brugt spil, uden at være dårligt, men man kan se sliddet på kortenes midte. Ingen væsentlige buk eller bræk. Kortene ser mere slidt ud, end de er. Det skyldes, at de er trykt på gulligt karton (jeg har selv en anden version, som er trykt på hvidere karton). Fire kort er netop erstattet af kort fra et “hvidt” sæt, bl.a. hjerter dame. Ingen æske. Toldstempler på ruder es, – et grønt, der angiver perioden efter 1918, og MÅSKE et tidligere dansk? (Eller måske et australsk ??? – for spillet har været i Australien de sidste 100 år). Sjældent spil. Blue reverse. Version with Jugend-style design on the reverse, and the version with opposite Salomon – Holmblad on the Jack of Clubs. Well used deck, without being poor, but one can see the usage in the middle of the cards. No serious bends or breaks. The cards look more used, than they are. It is because they are printed on yellowish cardboard (I have a similar version printed on whiter background). Four cards are replaced from a “white” deck, among them the Queen of Hearts. No box. Tax stamps on the Ace of Diamonds (One Danish, green after 1918 and another perhaps earlier – or perhaps an Australian ??? – because the deck has been in Ausralia for the last 100 years). Rare deck.
