Double-Backed Card

The first description occurs in R.P's Ein Spiel Karten (1853, translated by Dr. Lori Pieper in 2005), in a trick with the translated title of “The Nameless Card.” It is a gag, rather than a magic trick. However, Hofzinser was known to use this gaffed card for magical uses in the mid-1800s. See Domination of Thought in Hofzinser’s Card Conjuring (1910, English translation 1931).
