The Davenport Collection
- a growing resource on magic and entertainment history

Said to be an Anderson coin holder

It is impossible to prove the provenance of this item, but I include it here because it is an interesting item in its own right. It came into the Davenport Collection in 1982 as a gift from Norwich magician Harry Carson. Previously it belonged to Dick Ritson, a good friend of Harry’s and a well respected Yorkshire magician and magic historian. History does not tell us why Dick believed it originally came from Anderson (1814-1874).
