"A participant of the 2010 IPP Design Competition, this devilish take apart puzzle is not for the faint hearted. It's extremely difficult to open, and even more difficult to fully understand. The mechanism is simple enough, but figuring out the exact principle is difficult. The goal is to simply open the egg and remove the "yolk" (in this case a US quarter coin). Individually manufactured by Robrecht in the EU, this puzzle is fairly heavy and very solid. It will not be mistaken for a mass produced puzzle." -Eric Fuller
