Hi all,

Been searching around the web and the forum trying to find the origin of the double deal turnover (I believe this is the name, you take the top and bottom card as one and turn them over face up on top of the deck)
I've found the double deal in Expert Card Technique but can't find the double deal turnover anywhere.

I'm using it in an ebook and obviously need to credit the right person for the move.

Yeah, In a Sadowitz book he refers to turning over the top and bottom cards as one. Any references to learning how to do this properly?

I think this is one that will require a lot of mirror practice.

When Peter Duffie & I had a chapter on it in our book Card Conspiracy, Vol. 1, the earliest reference we found to it as a turnover was Allan Ackerman, Here's My Card, (1978), p. 92. We described two new handlings in the chapter.

I should look more closely at our books myself. Max Maven later gave us an earlier reference, which we published in Vol. 2. Irv Weiner's "Double Lift with one Card" from the April 1860 Linking Ring Parade.
