I had a lucky find a few weeks back on the bay of eees. I'd been reading through old threads here and saw mention of the Towle Pewter Shells. So I did a quick search and found - nothing. I then decided to to look for closed sales and completed listings. Bingo, someone had two completed listings without sale and the last was only two weeks before.

I messaged the seller and asked if they we still available. Yes, and they went back up and I did a buy it now, via my phone, in the middle of a Ikea store! So for $20 + postage I've picked up a nice set of the Towle Pewter Walnut Shell Game.

I ran through my 1 Minute Workout a few times with them on a closeup mat and they handle well with a notch in either side where your finger or thumb can sit. The 1 Minute Workout puts you in a good place to handle shells like these without the Channin Dip. They are heavier, weighing in at 40g.

Specifications
Length 42.5mm
Width 35.0mm
Height 16.9mm
Mass 40g

Steady hands are still using these shells or moved onto other shells?

These are more of a collectors piece than for regular use. They weigh in a 40g each, not as heavy as the Konigswalder Riesen Set (53g) but still heavier than the School for Scoundrels copper set (32g).
