Early Regal, very commercial Effect! The method is simple, yet devious – in short, a pleasure to perform. A spectator has a free choice of several numbered claim checks (like you would get at a coat check or similar). The claim check is stapled to the back of a freely selected card, and one half off the check is torn off and handed to the spectator. After a demonstration of “no risk (easy) magic” the claim check is removed from the card and destroyed. The spectator is now allowed to run through the deck. one card has a face down claim check stapled to it. It is the selected card. The spectator removes the claim check – it’s the selected number! The piece perfectly fits the check in the spectator’s hand.
