Several years ago I purchased a Houdini token, a so-called "fantasy souvenir", which shows Houdini's face on one side (with the words "Admit One") and "Compliments Garrick Theatre Week of Nov. 1" on the reverse. The Garrick Theatre (in Detroit), was the site of Houdini's last performance before his death on October 31, 1926. So the conceit of the token is that Houdini died before it could have been used. Does anyone happen to know the origin of this quarter-sized coin? Perhaps it was made for a Houdini seance, or some creative person's magic-themed party?

I do not know, but it sounds intrigueing!
The art of a magician is to create wonder.
If we live with a sense of wonder, our lives
become filled with joy
