I have a set of these and they are quite nice. They are not made for magicians but are instead designed for collectors of pewter and, as such, have no dip or notch. However, they work very well none the less. They are far superior to many magician's shell game sets.

If you are a collector, you need a set of these.

Those are nice, I think the dip is mainly used for the kick steal is it not? I think with a set of perfect peas from SfS they would work just great! How are they for grip though? Easy to pick up?

REAL easy to pick up. They have little indents in the side that are thumb and finger sized.

I'll post a couple of pics of my set....

Aren't you AUSTRALIAS honest con men? I wonder because the item is located in the United States?!?!?

I'm not selling them myself.

I just like them and would like to see them in the hands of someone who would appreciate them.

GOTCHA! My mistake. Thanks. Smile

I had the luck to get some of those shells a few weeks ago on ebay. But I just paid US $4,99. Smile

I have a set of Pewter shells put out by Jerry Mentzer in the '70s that look very similar to those ebay shells. But the Mentzer shells have a Chanin dip; it's small, but it's there.

I tried for them but was outbid. Smile

Pity!

I got a set of this at the same time as I got a set of Magic Maker's Golden Shells.

These pewter shells, designed and produced by a NON magicians, are infinitely superior in every way!

I am impatiently waiting for my Towle shells to arrive so I can try them out. NJJ I had seen a set years ago but didn't get them thinking they would be inferior. But after reading your recommendation I will try these out for $18.75. Someone said they maybe too heavy. I will see on Thursday.

Did they arrive? What do you think about them?

I like them. I got some kd peas to use with them. I am just starting to learn. I like the look of the shells. Steadyhands thanks for the interest. Any tips appreciated. I also could not find anything on the konigswalder shells you referenced.
