|+||Henry Christ's force using a double-backed card, which Theodore Annemann named "The 203rd Force", was first published in Annemann's //[[https://askalexander.org/display/26531/Shhh+It+s+a+Secret+Annemann/43|Sh-h-h--! It's a Secret]]//, 1934, p. 41.|
|+||Christ applied the same procedure to a location of a card freely cut to. This was first published in Hugard and Braue's //[[https://askalexander.org/display/14544/Miracle+Methods+Number+Three+Prepared+Cards+and+Accessories/9|Miracle Methods, No. 3: Prepared Cards and Accessories]]//, 1942, p. 8.|
|+||Christ's procedure led to a number of variations and refinements. Among the more interesting are these: George Kaplan corner-shorted the double-backed card, making it faster to locate and glimpse the selection above it; see Kaplan's //[[https://askalexander.org/display/62630/The+Fine+Art+of+Magic/54|Fine Art of Magic]]//, 1948, p. 44. Paul Curry clipped off more, making the double-backer a short card, which added the facilitation of a Double Lift in his "Turn of the Century" in //Paul Curry Presents//, 1974, p. 57.|
