Your Choice of Half Dollar or Quarter
A brass coin box resembling a large brass nut is removed from a velvet bag. In the center of the nut is a hole the spectator can visually see through. Three half-dollars or Quarters are placed in the coin box. The half dollars/Quarters are ungimmicked and may be marked if desired. The coin box with halves is openly placed on the table. An ungimmicked cup, which may be borrowed, is tipped forward and the coin box and halves/quarters are removed and placed on the velvet bag.
The magician states he can cause the half-dollars or Quarter to travel from point A (THE BAG) to point B (UNDER THE CUP). At this point the spectator can still see the halves/quarters in the coin box on the velvet bag. The magician rubs the top of the coin box with his fingers. The half dollars/quarters INSTANTLY VANISH! With empty hands, the magician lifts the cup and seen sitting there are the very same half-dollars/quarters. Spectator can lift up the cup him or her self! All props may be handed out for examination.
With this trick you receive a real solid brass coin box and a velvet bag. Instant reset, no palming, no shells, and mostly self-working. All items are 100% examinable at the conclusion of the trick. This effect is visual magic at its best!
