A clever, metal, tile-sliding puzzle.
This all-metal puzzle consists of three intersecting bands of 12 tiles (many are shared... there are 30 in total) that can be slid around the globe.
Time hasn't done my copy of this puzzle any favours. It's nearly impossible to play with. Mixing it up for the photograph took a real effort!
This puzzle is mentioned in Cubic Circular Issue #2 from 1982 which gives an upper bound of the year it was presented.

If you're looking to buy, eBay is the one place you can find almost anything... if you're willing to wait for it, then pay the price!
