"Special Delivery" was a marketed effect from him some years ago. I really liked it but cannot find any directions in my stacks. I was wondering if it was printed in any of his books or possibly on a dvd or lecture. Here is a link to the effect https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/654

I tried to find it on Conjuring Archive under both David Regal and Special Delivery with no luck. Thanks.

I also checked the effects taught on his 3 and 4 DVD sets https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S17251 & https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S4517 Kind ofhoping for a lecture at this point Or does anyone have a local brick and mortar that may still stock the stand alone?

I just ordered his new book a week or so ago from there and missed it completely. Thanks

"Special Delivery" is one of the first magic items I've ever bought. I still remember how I was impressed.

However, I haven't used it much because I have to carry a bunch of envelope to perform this.

I don't know if it's still available, but David Regal's Special Delivery was an independent reinvention of Roger Curzon's envelope. I believe Regal has acknowledged this.

Hi There -

First off, Poof Daddy, if you bought it just email me at david@davidregal.com and I'll send you a scan of the directions.

Second, as for the provenance of the gimmick, when it was released (Meir Yedid bought the rights decades ago) we received TWO you-did-not-invent-this emails. One credited the brilliant Roger Curzon (and I recommend his work on the gaff) and another credited the prolific Sam Berland - who put his out something like 40 years earlier. My handing was different, but the gimmick was exactly the same as his "Devil Dollar" (he used a bill). Roger's gaff is slightly different, but, as I say, mine was exactly the same as Sam's. So I get no credit, except perhaps for some handling touches.
