The deck contains all 52 cards in perfect order, as well as both Jokers. It is still in its original, factory-sealed cellophane wrapping. There is a small 'window' cut into the side of the deck which clearly shows all the cards.
The bottle is a normal, 'off-the-shelf' bottle like any you would buy. It is solid glass, and has not been sawn, cut or otherwise abused in any way. The neck of the bottle is approximately 2.5cm (1 inch) wide. The cork in the top of the bottle is removable.
The steel bolt is guaranteed solid, in one piece, and completely impales the deck. It is secured in place with a washer and a nut at each end. There is just 1cm clearance between each end of the bolt and the sides of the bottle, with no room to manoeuvre.
