    You want a first surface mirror. You can buy retail from Edmund Scientific or other retailers. It won't be cheap.  A good place to look for one is Surplus Shed.  https://www.surplusshed.com/  I've bought from them over the years and they are a good company to do business  with. Can also get surplus mirrors from Ebay.

    I purchased a conventional mirror, and got dual reflections...one from the front of the glass, and one from the silvered surface on the back side of the glass.

    So those who are getting good results from mirrors, are we talking front-reflecting mirrors? 

    My first look into front-reflecting mirrors is that I am going to have to order it from somebody online.  All of the mirrors available throgh local retail seem to have a rear reflecting surface.

    Thanks for your counsel on this, friends.
