Picked this up from an old magic estate.
The two prepared cards are stained around their edges and will need to be replaced.
Selling this for the secret instructions that explain in detail the clever working.
We will include all five original cards so you can see how it worked, but as explained above you will need to obtain or make for yourself two new gimmicked cards.
Effect: The magician shows to the audience very clearly three cards: two indifferent cards and an Ace, Joker, or King.
He lays the cards, on the table face down, and pushes forward one of the indifferent cards. He borrows
from a spectator a dollar bill, puts it into a glass and covers the pushed card with the glass.
Immediately, the magician shows again the remaining two cards (an indifferent one and the Ace). The
spectator chooses one of them. Without any manipulation, the magician flips the card and it is not
the Ace! He immediately flips the other card, and it is not the Ace either!
The spectator is invited to take the card that is under the bill, and turning it face up the spectators see it
is the Ace!
Everything may be examined.
