The performer shows a handsome wooden frame with three holes in it and a backing piece. A dollar bill (or any bill of your choosing) is sandwiched between the frame and the backing and is clearly visible through all three holes. A “star trap” is swiveled over the center hole, and a pencil pushed right through it, emerging from the other side. The note is visible through the two side holes as the penetration takes place. Finally, the star trap is swiveled away, to show the bill unharmed. The apparatus can be freely shown.
Note: The dollar bill pictured is for display only and is not included. Use any bill of your own or a borrowed one.
