Bartl prominently featured the words "​Neu!"​ (new!) and "​János Bartl'​s Original"​ in [[http://​www.conjuringcredits.com/​lib/​tpl/​credits/​files/​atlas-ad.jpg|his ad]], claims he used sparingly. The first listing for the trick seems to be in a Bartl advertising sheet, //Magische Edelsteine//,​ posted in July 1925; see Peter Schuster'​s //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​23232/​Collection+Adolphe+Blind+Le+Professeur+Magicus/​40|Collection Adolphe Blind "Le Professeur Magicus"​]]//,​ 2007, item 59.
