Mini Himber Peek Wallet by Jerry O’Connell and PropDog
The Jerry O’Connell Mini Himber Peek Wallet is the thinnest and easiest Himber to handle on the magic market today and as with all Jerry O’Connell’s leather products, this is made of the very highest quality leather.
About 1956 to 1957, Richard Himber used a leather wallet to do an effect, which he called, Bill-Fooled using a play on the American word Billfold. The basic construction of this type of wallet has not changed over the years and has become known as a “Himber’.
You can Peek what is placed into this Himber through a clear film window. The top pocket goes through to the other interior. It is also deep enough to hide a poker size card on one side only. Anything placed in here will show reversed in the other interior, after the turn over switch. The corner pockets are deliberately cut in the centre to allow paper items to display flatter when held in only one of the corners this also helps left handlers.
Do not over fill these wallets; it will effect its alignment. You will notice that all the hinges are silk, not leather, making it so very easy to open and close. Use my Gesture Change, it’s a very natural easy move. The grain of the leather will have something that will stand out on one side, so that you can identify which side is which. I suggest The Mini Himber is kept in the jacket’s top hanky pocket.
The dimensions of the wallet whilst closed is 125mm x 77mm.
