Dice and Lys


Some days ago during a trip to Paris I made a short visit to the beautiful "Musée Francais de la Carte à Jouer" in Issy-les-Moulineaux.
It was a delightfull visit for me and I advise all Tarot enthusiast to go there, you will find a lot of old precious decks presented in a very nice way.

A 1930 copy of Marteau's deck is also exposed.
I was surprised to notice that, as expected, the four of Deniers has the Lys but the Bateleur had the Dice instead of the coins

Well it must not mean too much as it is certainly not rare that cards from several decks get mixed.

But for my collector curiosity it is an interesting detail
