The Jacks

Have you ever really studied the court cards belonging to a regular deck of playing cards?

I looked through several decks & noticed some differences but nothing too outstanding. The court cards pretty much stay the same in a standard deck of cards. However, one deck had 3 jacks with moustaches & 1 without, and the other deck had 2 with moustaches and 2 didn’t. The direction the JACKS faced are identical.
Are you a Jack birthday?

Jack of Clubs. He is very youthful looking and has no facial hair. His hair is long with a neatly rolled curl all the way around. There is a feather or leaf protruding from his hat. After examining at what the Jack of Hearts was holding in his hand it appears to be one in the same, a feather or leaf. It is hard to tell if the jack of clubs is holding a long, fat arrow that has been partially cut in the image or if it is a shield which may make more sense. He faces to the right but not fully as does the jack of spades.

Jack of Diamonds. He has no facial hair either. His hair is in a similar fashion but a little less rigid on the one side. He does hold a sword. This jack looks to the left but not fully as does the jack of hearts.

Jack of Spades. He is sporting a moustache. He looks straight to the right and only his right eye is visible on the cards, hence the one-eyed jack. His hair is a bit more unruly and not as neat as the previous 2 jacks. He is the only jack with 2 rows of curls. He looks like he is older and has the look of more experience on his face. It is not certain what he hold his hands, maybe a type of weapon or a symbol of some sort. It could be a very decorated knife or spear.

Jack of Hearts. He has a moustache as well. His hair maintains the fashionable curl as with the other jacks but looks more free flowing. This jack is also more mature. He faces directly to the left of the card and only his left eye can be seen. In his hand he holds a feather or leaf similar to what the jack of clubs has sticking out of his hat. Perhaps a secret message or code? Behind him stands an axe.
