The fragments come from at least six different imprints, of which all but one is coloured.
All cards are fairly well preserved. Still, the suit designation of
two of them knights can only be ascertained indirectly with the use of
two of the other four packs! While the knights of swords and coins have
clear suit symbols, the remaining two do not. Of these, one is unique in
the entire material, while the other is a mirror-image equivalent of a
poorly preserved card in the
crude pack. Unfortunately, that pack
too also lack clear suit symbols on the knight cards in these two suits.
However, the other of those two is again a copy of one of the
tarot pack knights. In that pack the three others are clearly
marked as swords, cups, and coins, leaving the
mystery knight as
the knight of batons, which by a chain reaction of similar eliminations
firmly establishes that the unique knight in the present block is also
the knight of batons.
Note that both the
king of cups are both
female, but that this does not affect their rank.
The Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) fragment consists of two overlapping fragments from different imprints with unequal secondary distortion causing them to match up imperfectly.
