"Nelson Hahne's 1947 National Magic catalog illustration for the
Perfection Sliding Die Box: "This 'Sucker Box' is beyond doubt one
of the most popular tricks any magician could have in his program.
Whether the audience is young or old, it always fools the wise
guys." Beautifully made of mahogany, hand rubbed, and wax fin-
ish; hinges are chrome plated, giving a rich and attractive appear-
ance. Price $17.85 postpaid"

(adjusted for inflation $17.85 in 1947 dollars would equal $222.48 in 2021.)

Memories - as said, I have several of the above effects bought in the 50's 60's- good stuff. Still cherish them. David, when your car is better, we've got to get together ( to heck with a PM --- L-O-L ) RR
