Here's the third pack of surprisingly inexpensive playing cards I bought.

These are Piatnix Luxusfiguren #26, which date from 1957. They're a bit unusual in that over the years the red ink used in their printing seem to have spread somewhat. I don't know if this is deliberate (to give its figuren a more luxus appearance) but it looks quite effective anyway. The printing method itself isn't of a particularly high quality: close up, you can see the dots used for printing.

Two more packs arrived today, by the way, but it'll be awhile before I show you those because they were a bit damp and they smell somewhat mouldy. I've put them in the garage so they can defumigate naturally.
