I agree. I have checked with the french DECRET which is clear on that point (as you wrote arcano, but maybe your english translator made a mistake and had inverted the meaning), : "Les jeux tant au portrait français qu'au portrait étranger envoyés à l'exportation ne devront pas porter le timbre institué par le présent décret.", which means that decks that are to be sold outside France don’t need the tax stamp.

So it is possible that a deck made in France, from 1890 to 1944, doesn’t have the tax stamp, in the case it is sold outside France. So (remember that the deck 21 has a "MADE IN FRANCE" stamp), the deck 21 has probably been sold outside France during the 30's or beginning 40's.
