The first time I saw this was about 1957. It was not packaged and it had no instructions. It was sold over the counter by various and sundry magic shops. I'm really curious as to when Lubor Fiedler invented it.In 1957, Lubor was living in Czechoslovakia, which was behind the iron curtain, so it would have been difficult for us to get the proper information on how and where this came into the US.
I bought it back in the 1960s. If my memory is correct it was called "Gozinta" and was sold by the Inzani-Henley Magic Company of London. Peter Zenner
I disagree when a product is that old and later copies are called fakes.
