Expanded Shell Sets use an expanded shell along with ungaffed inner coins which are hand-picked for an exact size-match as well as for overall appearance matching. With expanded shells, it is possible (with some searching) to find other ungaffed, matching fits. An expanded shell might also fit your other normal-sized gaffs, like your flipper coin.

These shells are manufactured by Roy Kueppers. I personally manufacture each item that I sell and I use my very own unique method for Expanding shells. I also very carefully select specific characteristics in the coins I choose to make the shells. Not all coins are created equal so I feel that a combination of the right chosen coin and my unique process make for a high quality Expanded shell with 90% coverage when nested.

Many effects are possible with the use of this shell.

Routine and instructions included.

This shell and the coins are all of matching dates. The coins have nice grip for classic palm.

The shell itself is very well made. Way better than tango shell without a doubt.

If these are in stock get them.

This is my first shell set so I really have nothing to compare it to, though I have read a great deal about shells and about other people’s experiences with different manufacturers. That said, to my eyes the shell looks really good and the matching coins really do match the date and look of the shell and seem to fit well.

Be advised, however, that the shell will NOT fit Roy’s “Roth” coin boxes. To be fair to Roy, he never claims that they will. But I was under the impression that they might due to their association with David Roth and the fact that David Roth has said in a number of places that his boxes will take an expanded shell. It’s my understanding that the boxes he was referring to were made by a different manufacturer at the time so that may explain the discrepancy.

Other than that, I’d say that if you want an inexpensive but expertly-made shell set and you don’t mind using clad coins, then this is a good one to get. Especially if you’re just getting into shells like I am. Highly recommended.
