The Professor Whyley Cigarette Packet

A number of tricks are possible with these packets which were sold in pairs. For example, the performer holds a packet upright and drops a sixpenny piece into it. The packet can immediately be shown to be empty, although the coin can be produced again from the packet at any time. Another trick described in the instructions involves the use of both packets.
