The King of Hearts apparently lost his moustache over the years because of production errors, so to speak. Before the factories of the Industrial Revolution, mass production relied on workers' handiwork. Printing decks of cards involved using wooden blocks that were hand-carved by artisans. Over the centuries, disfiguring happened in the hands of workers who lacked the skills of their predecessors. This changed the design of the different card figures. The King of Hearts lost his moustache, and his original ax transformed into a sword. Source: SMH.com.au
