These four-leafed clover cards are  in the "Castle Series" published by "LN" and printed in Saxony.  The general style (both sides) suggests they were published about 1910. An extensive online image search failed to reveal any similar post card examples with clover or shamrocks for other towns.

It should be noted that the above cards have a glazed surface and have been lightly embossed round the frame. The result has been to crack the glaze round the frame (fortunately only minimally in the picture area) and cause flaking and colour loss in the brown frame - which has been digitally repaired in all the above examples.

It seems likely that these were two different sets, each with 6 different cards.

A search for online images of post cards by a publisher "LN" producing somewhat similar cards of a similar date turned up this vignette card of Queen Eleanor's Cross, Northampton, and 3 similar Northamptonshire views identified as being produced by "LN Publishing" (backs unseen). I found about a dozen conventional view cards of Northamptonshire (posted between 1908 and 1912) and I found a small number of references to Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire numbered views.

It is therefore likely, but not certain, that the Berkhamsted cards were produced by a Northampton publisher.
