Pipe Shiner

 

A shiner is basically a mirror, or any other object with a reflective surface, that is used to glimpse at the indices of playing cards, as the cards are being dealt. This shiner is concealed inside of a pipe.

The practicality of a pipe shiner, such as this one, is questionable, but this kind of shiner appears in a few old gambling books and was also listed in several old crooked gambling catalogs as a poker cheating accessory.
