Question about Tenyo Billscape

Postby Steve Cobb » April 30th, 2013, 5:41 pm

I have been watching Billscape currently on ebay for crazy prices. I own Billscape but I lost the pin that comes with the trick. I believe it had a loop on the end. Does anyone know if this is a regular pin or a special Tenyo pin? Thank you for your help.

I think it's a regular pin. The loop is there to make it easier to hold. You could probably use a hat pin.

There was a discussion on the Cafe a couple of months ago about that.
Perhaps it will be of some help to you.

If you used a nice stickpin you could get a good story out of it.

Steve

It is a upholstery pin you can get Osborn Ref N190-4 100 mm (4 inch) nickel plated upholstery pins (skewers) online or better yet just go to an upholstery place ask for a couple they might just give them to you. I use them all the time for locksmith work I buy them by the box. ;)

I like Richards hatpin idea.
Tenyo's often lack original storylines anyway.

A skull on a stick is fun. You might intimate in a humorous way that it's the shrunken skull of the president on the bill that is escaping. :)

Time for a Doh moment. I never scrolled past the photo of the skull on the stick on my mobile. Nor did I read the "how about these for pins" line. I was walking as i viewed the photo and thought the photo was in reference to the previous post of the final winning bid. Doh! Doh!.. and one for luck. Doh!

I am actually surprised it didn't fetch more, I predicted $700-800 plus!

Note to self...when keys to the Tardis are located, remember to stop off in late 70s, 80s, and early/mid 90s and stock up on Tenyo items.

Wow, just wow. $ 570.00 for Billscape....and you have to supply your own bill.
