An image of the joker turned up a few days ago while discussing the post of a deck by an unknown Belgian maker in this group and I thought it would be nice to show the complete deck here now too.
Special advertising courts, based on their Anglo-American pattern, special aces and a special joker in today's lockdown deck....... the Miss Blanche deck by the Speelkaartenfabriek Nederland from Amsterdam, printed in offset and first published here by the British American Tobacco Company in 1939. The deck is well documented: 20.664 decks were delivered from the end of 1939 to the beginning of 1940 and 27.180 decks from the end of 1940 to the beginning of 1941.
