OK its the old self working matchbox...but what makes this interesting is that there are:
no threads, no wires, no body attachments etc.

If your fear/hatred of thread has kept you away from performing this trick...this very well could be what you have been looking for.

I performed it for one very well known professional, who laughed out loud at its cleverness.

For 10 bucks...its hard to go wrong.

Made in England, I never saw it anywhere else, and struggle to recall how it was put together. Like other effects, I look at different methods, ever in search of the ideal one. Bob Solari's take on Haunted Matchbox, intrigued me enough to get one, and for me it's an effective approach to the trick. The box is made to do two things-swivel and open/close. Compared with other versions of the trick, this is somewhat limited.
