Topic: Billusion (The other one)

Im looking for an older effect called "Billusion" NOT to be confused with Jay Sankey's version. In this trick a bill is borrowed and placed in a black envelope type of thing with 3 windows. You then pull out the middle of the bill. I have never seen anything like this before using this method to do a zigzag type of effect. It looks pretty good, and is very convincing as both ends of the borrowed bill can be seen extended out from both ends of the envelope, yet the middle is missing. The method was very diabolical and clever. I owned one about 10 years ago when it first came out. I unfortunately lost it somewhere over the years. I have never seen anyone performing it, nor have I ever seen it advertised again. Back then it sold for about $20.00. Does anyone know the effect I am talking about and if so where can I get one.
