Vintage 1889 Wizard Cuff Holder - Gambling Cheaters Clip


A handsome vintage silvertone cuff holder, stamped WIZARD, PAT FEB 5 1889. There is a fold-out clip at one end and a spring clip that swivels 360 degrees at the other end. Folklore suggests that the more inventive of the Wild West poker boys managed to use this innocent gadget to somehow keep a playing card (usually an ace) hidden up their sleeve. This item is 120 years old. It is in good working order, and is charmingly aged. A stunning addition to your collection and a great conversation piece! 7 day auction starting at only $14.95(AUD) Click here to view or bid on this item on eBay
