Corner-Pocket Card Feke

This feke is a diagonally cut index corner of a card joined at the two outer edges to a similarly shaped piece to make a pocket, so that the corner can be fitted over the index corner of a normal card to make it appear as a different card in a fan. The feke is used in a similar manner to a split-index card, but palming away the corner-pocket leaves the card examinable. This feke was first described by Yelma (Albert Lewis) in Tricks of To-day, 1914, p. 46, who claimed it an original idea of “Mr. [Charles F.] Waite of Manchester”.
