What’s the slight defect you ask? Realistically speaking this item is over engineered. It is NOT necessary for all chambers to be revealed. Via the process of elimination you only need to know TWO. If a person places the rod in the Number 1 position, the reading is not as obvious. However, all one has to do is realize that to know by the process of elimination that it is indeed in that position. If one wanted to, a simple touch with slight of the lid as if your fingers had magnetic properties will clearly yield absolutely. But again, it’s not necessary. If you know the answer to Number 2 and Number 3 – you have everything you need. That is why we are making this item available “in the condition that it is in” for this price.
A Magical-Mental-Miracle! By permission of Owen Magic Supreme. Made for us by craftsman, Louie Gaynor. One of the finest mental effects ever created by Floyd Thayer and perpetuated by Owen Magic Supreme all of these years!
Divination was first released by Floyd Thayer c. 1922. It was invented by the always creative Ed Massey and described in his book New and Original Magic. This version was recreated by master craftsman Louis Gaynor with permission from Owen Magic Supreme via Stevens Magic Emporium. Do you want something in the way of a new and baffling effect that will stand the test of the most critical? A solid brass bar is dropped into one of the three numbered openings in a Beautiful Walnut wood case. Without having seen this done, the performer can tell which number contains the bar without touching the case or opening the lid instantly!
- Performer never touches the cabinet.
- No magnets!
- No electronics!
- No confederates!
The principle has stood the “test of time” and stands alone! Ingenious! You will love the “modus operandi” of this beautifully created effect. Made in high-class walnut and deserves a nice place in your collection. Supreme Divination is self-working, instantly repeatable (no reset is required) and exceptionally deceptive.
Dimensions are 5.25-inches long by 3-inches wide and 4.5-inches tall. Whether you purchase it as a collector, mentalist or magical performer this is one item that easily appeals and satisfies all of the disciplines of magic.

NOTE: Image shown in photo is the Louie Gaynor version. Please note there will be minor cosmetic changes due to the unique characteristics of walnut. Rest assured it is top quality craftsmanship.
“This is unquestionably one of my top 10 personal favorites in magic! It’s an effect that will provide both you the performer as well as the spectators a tremendous amount of joy. I can’t tell you how many magicians I’ve fooled with this effect!” — Joe Stevens
