Treasure Finder. London: Will Goldston Ltd., ca. 1919. A coin is hidden under one of three covers on a wooden platform. With a tiny “treasure finding rod,” the magician divines its location. With Goldston business card, instructions, and contemporary advertisement. Platform 8 x 3 x 1 ½”. Chipping at base. Uncommon. An early and clever use of electricity and light bulbs in a conjuring trick. The secret lies in the pedestal. When the coin is hidden, its presence completes an electrical circuit. A secret button is pressed which illuminates a hidden lightbulb and revealing the location of the coin.
Treasure Finder.
