Wasn't me. Although those mlid arkings look a LOT like how I mark mine, I've never made a small box like that in the pictures.

Cold be an old Paul Diamond or the guy that is famous for his coin and box work in dollar size, He also made Hot Rods and does dice stacking and published a book. I can't remember his name, think he is Florida.

That would be Jim Zachary or Jim Zee. I don't believe he's making boxes anymore.

Tom G, yes, that is the person.

I do know I seen that that design box back in the 1970's at the local magic shop, but if memory serves me correctly, it was a quarter box. I am sure the owner of the store did not purchase the half dollar size to sell because of cost.

I did see the half dollar size version at magic conventions, and that is why I noted Paul Diamond, as I always visited his display.

I never purchased it, because I had a half dollar version from Ken Brooke in England, it come with a nice routine, and added some other special coins to make a wager routine. His box was spun of aluminum though.

Keep in mind that this not an Okito box, but one where someone puts a half dollar in and closes it and you can tell by holding it if it is heads or tails"
