Any help on these I was told they could be Pierre baudard from early 1700's or they could be repro but either way very rare.  Hoping for some pointers on what to look for or who to contact.
Thanks
Tom

They were cut out from a book. Page 16 of Henry Rene D'Allemagne's Antique Playing Cards which was originally published around a century ago but reprinted in 1996. You can buy the book here: https://www.amazon.com/Antique-Playing-Cards-Pictorial-History/dp/0486292657/

I took one out they are blank on the back,  and unfotunately were glued in so there is a thin square of cardboard,  on the back,  paper thickness is like a business card.  Not sure if that's just a sample page out of the book but mine are similar but nin style but not identical
Heres a higher res image of the queen and the back damage.
