VERY RARE TO FIND IN THIS EXCELLENT CONDITION!
Specially minted magic tokens and coins have been a part of magic acts for well over 150 years.
Many famous magicians have used them, especially magicians who specialized in palming and manipulation.
Others sold them to fans and collectors or gave them out as souvenirs.
Many of these tokens are very collectible, and some are now extremely hard to find.
Here's your chance to own a piece of magic history!
This coin was sold by L.L. Ireland Magic Company around 1959.
L.L. Ireland Magic Co. was opened by Laurie Ireland, in 1926, in Chicago.
After Laurie Ireland's death in 1954, it was operated by his widow Frances Ireland, and by Jay Marshall, whom she later married.
In 1963, the shop moved to its current location, renamed as MAGIC INC.
This coin was issued both as a collectible and as a palming coin.
It is approximately the size of a U.S. silver dollar coin.
On each side, it shows a magician pulling a rabbit from a hat, with the words "One Necromantic Coin" and the initials "L.L.I."
For magic token collectors, this coin is listed by Kuethe as MT1170.
