Joker Poster Jokers that I'm Still Looking For

There is a joker poster published by the Joker Museum in 1991. Learn more about the joker poster  , my pursuit of the 72 on the poster, and  how I classify the ones that I have.  

Update 11-11-2021. Only 16 to go! I bought the 1934 Bier Smoking Tobacco joker that was at 6D. 

Update 8/5/21: Only 17 to go. This year, I bought the Bengal 1895 Kalamazoo R3, CI and the Adobe deck. Here's the ones that I still need:

2C: X-Ray Playing Cards. N American Playing Card Co, Chicago. 1898

2H Adking USA for Pacific Yellows Pages, c 1960.

3D Perfecto Americana. Atlas Playing Card Co. NY. c 1925

3E Chess deck. Unknown. C 1900

3H Eclipse Comic Book Playing Cards. EH Kowerre.
First original American Transformation deck with Joker. 1876.

3I Bengal. American Playing Card Co. Kalamazoo Paper Box Co. c 1895.
Hurray, I just got this one too.
Just got this on 4/25/21!

4F Charter Oak. N American Card Co. Chicago. C 1900
5E Piatnik, Vienna, Austria c 1951

5G Steamboat (marked deck) Novelty Playing Card Co, Chicago 1935

5I Bearings Magazine (Bicycles). USPC 1910

6B American Bank Note Co, NY c 1930

6D Bier Smoking Tobacco. USPC 1934

6I  Adobe Deck, Adobe Systems, Mountain View, CA 1988
The good news is I bought this deck and have it!

7D P.B. Ale-Portlager. USPC. 1907

7E Marked Cards. Brooklyn Playing Card Co., NY 1896.
7F Art Colo. Justo Rodero E Hijos S>A>I>C, Argentina, c 1970+
Here's the good news. April 13, I got a Rodero. 
Confession: the text on mine is different than the original on the poster. Here's a comparison so you can opine on whether it's fair. Mine is the one with more dramatic text. He'll go in the seating section!

8D Fairplay. A Dougherty, NY c 1910

8E Piatnick, Vienna. Austria. C 1949

8H Red, While and Blue Playing Cards (No-Revoke deck). Independent Playing Card Co Johnston, PA 1926

8I Clown Cigarettes. USPC 1925. Last one. Finally.

If you have any of these jokers, please contact me. john@      edelson  dot info.
I'd play a pretty penny or trade for them aggressively.
