Hi Kat,

Nope. Nothing. The two of clubs should have one, as far as I know, see attached image, no clear indication there. Were they all stamped from the date of their first being made?

If not then this suggests that maybe these are more recent than the last date of tax stamping...


Thanks for the input...



Tax stamps RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE & DÉCRET DU 12 AVRIL 1890 were used in France from 1890 - 1940 - this deck is most likely from after that. But hard to tell which year exactly. Decks prior to 1890 have often plain backs (pink for instance on Grimaud decks).

But who cares - it's a gorgeous deck! And you have the box, which is awesome.
