A currency bill is sandwitched between the frame and the backing and is clearly visible through all 3 holes. A “star trap” is swiveled over the center hole, and a pencil pushed right through it, emerging from the other side. The note is visible through the 2 side holes as the penetration takes place.
Finally, the star trap is swiveled away, to show the bill unharmed. The apparatus can be freely shown.
Made from wood the apparatus is available in two sizes and can be used with dollar notes, or 50 Rupee Notes.
