Playing-Card Sealing Bands from Austria

This page shows sealing bands ('Verschlussmarken') from Austria that were used to seal the playing-card packs.

These are two bands from 1882. The values are 15 resp. 30 Kreuzer, and there also was a 60 Kreuzer band.
 

The following are the three bands in use 1885. The values are 15, 30, and 60 Kreuzer.
 

 

The next is a special band from 1897 for juggling and trick cards ('Taschenspieler- und Kunststückkarten').

The following are the three bands in use 1900. The values are 30 and 60 Heller and 1 Krone 20 Heller.
 

 

These are two bands from 1917. They still bear the date '1900', but the eagle in the underground is different. The values are 30 and 60 Heller (and there exists a third band with 1 Krone 20 Heller).
