Thanks to Rev

One of the best parts of collecting anything is when friends think to contribute to your collection.  Rev, thanks.  He bought me two new jokers while on a trip to Charleston.  Well done!

 The second of the two (pictured to the right) is a slight variation on one of the very common joker designs (see Joker Collection pp. 31a & 31b).  The first one is a fascinating combination of this same joker design plus the head, falling cards, and banner from another very common design: "the world joker" used by Carta Mundi (see Joker Collection pp. 55a & 55b).
