Will & Finck Brass Sleeve Holdout. San Francisco, ca. 1880s. Early Jacob’s Ladder-style sleeve holdout delivers a card into the gambler’s hand when his elbow is bent, and retracts when straightened. Brass with sturdy original leather straps and hardware. Stamped “Will & Finck/S.F. Cal” on the lever. Fine. This piece was used to illustrate the cheating section of “The Gamblers” in Time-Life’s Old West series (1978), p. 124.
