This is an original Delben Domino made by Ben Stone. It is complete with special domino (approximately 7 x 10.5 inches) and includes the original instructions which are signed by Ben Stone. The effect is similar to most multiplying spot cards, but this one has an amazing finale. It starts out as a domino with one spot on the front and two spots on the back. Then there are three spots on the front and four on the back. The magician apparently exposes the secret by showing how his hand can cover the miss-spotted domino to create the illusion of the number of spots changing. However, the magician then shows that the domino REALLY has three spots on one side and REALLY has four spots on the other side. Then for the finale one spot complete vanishes leaving a spot size hole clear through the domino! (see photo) This is not only a great trick and a fooler, but it is extremely rare to come across these today. It is extremely well made from heavy steel and built to last. You can see photos I took here:

I'm not sure why the above link did not work, but you can cut and paste it to see the page with the photos.

It doesn't work because you didn't use the Link function button to past it in. I'll fix it.

Ryan:

I have one and if you would like, I would be happy to provide you with the same terms as Mike (it does lack Ben Stone's signature on the instructions)...

Will try to get photographs tomorrow...

Here are the photos:

There is one tiny ding in the steel at one end that does not affect the workings and is invisible except under very close inspection. Also, the white spots could use a small amount of cleaning (which is currently unseen at a performing distance).

Because of these and the lack of Ben's signature on the instructions, I will let it go for $150 (shipping included to the domestic US)...
