Wrought from SOLID CUPRO SILVER, this Box contains both in artistic finish and mechanical perfection all the qualities that could be possibly demanded of the most fastidious and highly finished performer. The subtle mechanical principle which enables the performer to produce, vanish or change the Cards while Box is in the hands of the spectator, is the very essence of indetectability, and may also be used with great effect in mind reading and Spirit message tests.
The SOLID SILVER feature of this Box is in itself a positive guarantee and renders the Hinges and delicate parts immune from corrosion or rust. No Nickel plate to wear or peal off. It can safely be left in the hands of the audience without fear of detection. Lasting beauty and Service are what make this a P&L product of the highest order.
Secret: You must place the magnet in the upper right corner of the box (and the edge away from the hinge). This is NOT the magnet that came with the item. It will take TIME to open. The flap will open up, Experiment with moving the magnet as pull at it, This thing was meant to withstand inspection. So it will not be easy for you to open! Use only the one magnet in the cornet. (not both on the lid), Use the other magnet as a handle. Patience. It will open. It is not broken. On occasion, you will be able to open immediately. This is a fluke! It is not supposed to open right away.
