Will Alma Apparatus

Hi all,
My grandfather left me a heap of Will Alma (Australia) apparatus and magazines / instructions from the '30's and '40's. There are card frames, die boxes, rice bowls, publications, instructions, dove pans.

Is there a market for these collectable pieces?

Cheers.

Coin in Bottle folding coins

Hi there, Looking for some advice on folding coins (2 fold). Are the Roy Keupper coins the ones that have a groove all the way around the coin or are they the internally drilled ones (or both??).

20 year anniversary RIP Dai Vernon

20 years today since The Professor passed. August 21st 1992. I cannot even put into words this man's impact on the art of magic.
Rest in Peace Dai.

Re: 'The Story Of Magic' 2 part series narrated By Ricky Jay...

Thankyou for the replies. I just got emailed back by A&E and they confirm that this is no longer available from them. Looks like Ebay is the only option here.

Thanks.

Re: Hustlers hoaxsters pranksters jokesters scene

Cheers guys. BTW excellent job on the whole 'online genii' magazines. Boy, oh boy that would have been a job and a half to bring together. Would I be right in assuming that every issue of genii would have been scanned for this project? Excellent job, a wonderful magical resource for generations. Ben

Re: Del Ray (Delbert Raymond Petrosky)

Thankyou very much for your reply Nick. Wow, from his home town hey! I'm quite jealous. I wait with baited breath for the DVD package to hit the light of day.

I would love to hear what your experiences were like in meeting the man himself and performing with him.

Del Ray (Delbert Raymond Petrosky)

My good friend has told me all about the legend of Del Ray and I cannot find any vision of him performing. I would love to see this legend in action but I think any vision of him is pretty rare. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Can you buy a video/DVD or anything?
