That part with the OCT really looks like an October date in English, but it must be some other designation since it appears on the white Palekh that nECrO posted at the beginning of the Russia thread, as well as on my white and black Palekh decks, always with OCT but different #s
Hiya Dazzelguts, Yes very confusing
i thought that was an actual date when i first started getting the decks as well. If you look at my "slavic" deck from the previous page, it has a prefix of TY instead of the OCT.Not sure what it means. But the actual dating of the deck is from the L-##r At the bottom left corner.

I agree a beauty for sure , The courts are truly remarkable and the 21 tarok cards are stunning, yes the paintings are from the great war. I`m always gutted when i can only show so many of the cards...but thats what the Worldwide Time Machine forum is for
So I came upon this seller on this one vintage selling website, who has a large collection of vintage decks for sale (for pretty high prices).
I just thought that Jase and others reading this thread might find something interesting from there. Anyways here's the link: https://www.rubylane.com/shop/twoforhisheels/ilist
Thanks for the link Roope.
Always good to see these sellers site`s, even if its for price comparison..
I had a quick look, will take a good look when i`ve got some time off, While the prices may be high ,i have seen higher but then i have seen a lot lower as well...Who knows there may be that "ONE" deck that i`ve been looking for, thats worth (for me anyway) spending that little bit extra.
Here`s some Cherry Coloured Funk.
First up is a De La Rue Piquet set. 36 cards per deck with both decks having the same back design and colour, D6 court cards with Medium size index dates the deck from 1890 to 1910.
Next is Jass Plus printed by AGMuller of Switzerland. The deck was designed by Muster Geschutzt in 2001
Scans of the full set of court cards can be seen in the switzerland section of the Worldwide time machine.
Rockwell International. I have not been able to find any info on these beauties i`m afraid .American printer i think?? The court cards are fantastic.. shame about the back
And finally today a pair of "named" Barribal backs from Waddingtons dated around 1932-1940.
Thanks for looking at my cards
