Is a Nickle a Nickle? Sometimes “yes” and sometimes “no” it’s all a matter of how you look at it, or we should say – “where you look at it!”
Special thanks to Bill Montana – for selecting Stevens Magic Emporium to sell this amazingly utiltiy device. Just when you thought there wasn’t anything more that could be done with a shiner! Boom – Now there is, and you need to get your hands on it – NOW!
This device has had many names through the years… Some refer to it as a “Shiner” or “Glim.” Bill prefers the old Scottish word – GLISK (meaning a glimmer). The Glisk is a small reflector used to secretly read the faces of cards/tickets as they are being dealt to your spectators, or to gain a peek at the bottom card of a deck. The device may also be used to peek hand-written information on a card.
What makes this even more unique is the fact that the “shiner” is on the alternative side of a American Nickel – (heads or tails depending on model you get) allowing you to easily get it into play without any suspiciousness. When you see this item, when it arrives in the mail, you will immediately be impressed.
Each unit is numbered and certified with signature on the instructions from the craftsman Bill Montana. They also come with instructions to help you get comfortable using the unit, care instructions and “important” details (i.e., like not carrying the unit outside it’s plastic box in your pocket with other coins, etc.). Bill has covered all the basics and the details while brief are straight to the point for better retention.
Stevens Magic has enjoyed a long and successful tenure at selling gambling related items, and this “GLISK” is without question the finest version we have ever seen. Thanks to my good friend Nick Belleas for turning me onto this item – you’re the greatest Nick!
