My pal Chris Kenner let me take some pics of the Copperfield Collection, but made it clear that he did not want them on the internet.

C'est la vie.

I will be writing up the experience on my blog, sometime in the near future.

That one doesn't work, nor does the earlier one anymore.

Tom, Thanks for the great photos. I was at Ken's museum in 1992. It was incredible. I also was at Bob Lunds American Museum of Magic many times. I saw Bob's tour over and over again and always learned something new.

The history of the props and apparatus is as colorful as the the people who performed it.

Having known Ken Klosterman sice I was 12 years old he (as well as a few others) started me on the path to collecting at an early age. I purchased a Thayre Sure Shot Die Box from Ken when I was 13. It was the first piece in my humble collection. I still have it today.
