The Original RWS - Pam C, rose and lily backs


For the first time, I was able to check this deck out in person yesterday in a local metaphysical shop. I think I'm in love, and plan on buying it today despite my budget.

What are everyone else's opinions on this version of the beloved Rider Waite Smith, particularly now that the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative deck seems to have eclipsed it as the ready-made "vintage" RWS?

The card that keeps haunting me from this deck is the Judgment card--the archangel's wide eyes are glorious and just weird enough to have captivated me right away. It also reminds me of a random character of popular culture from my past...I digress

ETA: Decided against getting the deck for now; trying to be grateful for the PCS Commemorative that I have instead! Maybe if I find a cheaper copy in the future...

Printings do matter with this deck. There are Belgium, Italy and China printings. I know we've discussed this before. Let me see if I can find the thread.
