-The earliest discovered description of this sleight is by Carl Willmann, who explained it in the context of a card-matching effect titled "Grand clairvoyance mystèrieuse"​ in his magazine //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​10636/​Die+Zauberwelt/​61-62|Zauberwelt]],//​ Vol. 1 No. 4, April 1895, pp. 60-61. Willmann gave three methods, two of which used a Mexican Turnover. The next year, F. W. Conradi-Horster described the move in //Der Moderne Kartenkünstler//,​ 1896, p. 16, and claimed the sleight originated in America. His source for this information may have been August Roterberg, who the next year included the sleight in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20169/​New+Era+Card+Tricks/​30|New Era Card Tricks]]//, 1897, p. 22. Evidence showing Roterberg'​s knowledge of Willmann'​s article is found in his use of the same title, "​Grande Clairyoyance Mysterieuse"​ (p. 167), for three methods producing the same matching effect as Willmann'​s. The three methods Roterberg explains differ only in small details from Willmann'​s.+The earliest discovered description of this sleight is by Carl Willmann, who explained it in the context of a card-matching effect titled "Grand clairvoyance mystèrieuse"​ in his magazine //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​10636/​Die+Zauberwelt/​61-62|Zauberwelt]],//​ Vol. 1 No. 4, Apr. 1895, pp. 60-61.

 In the mid-1800s, Johann Hofzinser had a related move — now called the Wild Card Move — in a trick called "​Thought"​ from //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​29356/​J+N+Hofzinser+s+Card+Conjuring/​69|Kartenkünste]]//,​ 1910, p. 65 of the Sharpe translation. In the mid-1800s, Johann Hofzinser had a related move — now called the Wild Card Move — in a trick called "​Thought"​ from //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​29356/​J+N+Hofzinser+s+Card+Conjuring/​69|Kartenkünste]]//,​ 1910, p. 65 of the Sharpe translation.
