Above: Naipes Guarany by C. Della Penna S.A.C.I. with ‘Marianne’ tax stamp on the ace of hearts, c.1955-68. The Joker has slight differences in the position of the lettering compared with the earlier example, but this is due to the colours being differently aligned.

Ace of hearts, naipes Guarany, c.1965 Naipes Guarany boxes, c.1965

Above: two matching Naipes Guarany decks, with red or blue boxes and wrapper. The company name of C. Della Penna S.A.C.I, the orange 1 Peso tax band on the wrapper and the green "Marianne" tax stamp on the ace of hearts suggests a date of c.1955-68.

Shortly after this the court cards were revised to a new version based on the designs of Goodall, along with a new Joker which also appeared in Naipes Congreso and Naipes Inca (Anglo-American version)
