Playing Card Mystery

2015-2016

Early in the morning on my way to work I would often notice that the very shiny new Barclays bank was putting basic lo-fi A4 playing cards in their window. There would be one each time, a different number and suit, just leaning against the window at floor level. I never saw a court card, mainly high number cards.
I thought that maybe a street magician had a friend on the inside who was helping with a card-thru-window trick, but it wouldn’t make sense for a large financial institution to play games inside their own building.

I then saw the cards appearing at a different Barclays Banks, and searched for them online. The only place I found any results were on a Scuba diving forum and Detective Blog. What are they and what do they mean!?
