Hi Guys,

Today I received an early version of T33 Coin & Glass. Box is quite damaged, but - probably - not used. It is too old to play without damaging but nice for the collection of old stuff.

Looks like it could be from 1959 through 1962.

Very cool, probably would not have seen an early original if you had not shared the picture with us.

Thank you!

Lubor Fiedler first published the trick (and it was his first published trick) in a German magazine in 1958. He accidentally discovered the principle while working in a chemical factory and wearing rubber gloves made out of a material similar to dental dam. This idea of doing Lubor's trick with rubber gloves was later reinvented by Doug Bennett (I think) and sold in the 1970s.
