Partial Set of 6 Lottery Cards, Differently Numbered

1880? Partial set of 6 cards similar in format to the above complete set, but with a different numbering system.  By Mauclair and Dacier, according to the seller.  $91.72 from Alexandra Lacroix of nantes-antiques, Nantes, France, through Ebay, Oct., '20.

Six of the cards in this lot actually repeat cards in the above complete set.  These other six follow a different numbering system, namely two sets of continuous numbers, four consecutive numbers at the top and then, after skipping eight numbers, another continuous set of numbers across the bottom of the board.  These illustrations are well colored, and the boards themselves are well preserved.
