I 2nd the positive recommendation for the Ambitious Card's 3 shell case. The case securely holds the shells so they do not rub or bump on each other. Great job, Frank!

I just bought a shell case from Frank at The Ambitious Card and it's very nice, high quality and something I would definitely recommend. Also, as I stated in another post, I recently bought some shells from Al at 3shells.com and they're just amazing. It's nice to buy professional props and items you're proud to use and display.

I think Michael Stehle's shells are among the finest on the market. They look great and handle well. I especially like his Alexandria Shells.

Thanks for the kudos.
We just finished prototypes of the deluxe shell case.
It has another larger zipper pouch above the shell case for things
like a shot Glass, pea can, poker chips, chip stack, etc.

If interested let me know and I can track down some pix.

I'd like to see pix of that deluxe shell case if possible Frank.

Pop, how does Michael Stehle's silver shells compare to the SFS Colorado silver shells (of which I own a set)?
I've honestly never contemplated purchasing any shells after I got the SFS Colorado shells, but Stehle's shells look very nice.
Are the Stehle silver shells Sterling?
Where does one purchase the Stehle shells?

Michael Stehle's silver Silverado shells are taller and bigger, and very nice. I still use the S4S Colorado shells. You can get in touch with Michael at the Gentlemen Shell Game Group on Facebook.

Thanks for the info Pop.
My S4S Colorado Silver shells just had a "COVID stay at home" dip in the silver polish, followed by a soapy scrub in the sink ... they look brand new (despite being many years old), and still ring like a church bell!

Interesting, since the lockdown I've permanently set up my practice mat with the SFS silver chain, my Colorado shells, my 3 disc monte, and my original SFS/Chris Reesman Chink-a-Chinks ... and I've never practiced so much as "lockdown practice" Smile

Is that Gentlemen Shell Game group still active on FB? I searched for it and couldn’t find it.

Michael Stehle's shells are the absolute cream of the crop. His resin shells are the most realistic looking, and easiest to handle, shells on the market. His cast bronze shells ring like bells and have a beautiful patina. And lastly, his silver shells are a true thing of beauty (if you appreciate the richness offered by a silver shell) - and he uses .935 silver, which is actually a higher quality of silver than sterling (it contains less copper). All of Michael's shells are real works of exquisite, functional art, and I cannot recommend his products (peas are wonderful too) highly enough. Plus, he's just a great guy with which to communicate and deal!

His new breathtaker shells are very large and will play very well in parlor or street shows.

I used to hear that taking real shells, and putting wood putty inside to smooth them out worked well after a little sandpapering. I think I would try that first. Still leaves the "pea" though.
