Would it work out if I bought a Morgan Dollar shell from either Jamie Schoolcraft or Johnson, then went to a coin store to find 5 coins that matched? Also, could I buy a worn shell from Jamie Schoolcraft?

I'm pretty sure that they usually just sell them in sets as opposed to simply a shell

Yes it would. that's just what I did and it worked out fine. I know that the gaff makers do extra edging on the coins so the grip is better for palming exc. But if you have a good clasic palm and feel comfotable with the regular edging of a coin then it works for me. There are some great gaffe coins out there don't get me wrong. I got mine from Johnson and its great. But with good slight of hand and some clever routining you can do some real magic with a s***l and a few matching coins. Good luck

Does the $60 Johnson shell at the Magic Waehouse cover the entire coin, like the edges? Or is there some showing like in the other Johnson shells?

Be carefull. The magic warehouse dosnt sell johnson silver shells. They are from another company. They are listed under johnson coins but you will see that it dosnt say johnson product under the silver dollar shell. This is a johnson shell.

The Magic Warehouse Morgan Shell does not cover the entire coin. It covers less than the Eisenhower Shell.

Did not know that johnson is signing silver Shells. Good to know now.

Ya Johnson will not sell wholesale to anyone and if you see there dollar she**s advertised under the $67.00 then its not a johnson silver dollar shell.

Hey Twocan... I actually spoke to the magic warehouse just over a month ago
there silver coins are johnson... I bought a few and they came with Johnson paper work...

But be carefull because most of their stuff is out of stock. If you add to cart you can see if the product is in stock.

Does the shell cover the entire edge? Or just half of the edge?

Not the entire edge but certainly way over half of the edge. I don't think covering the entire edge is that much important.

Does the Johnson one cover as much of the edge as the Schoolcraft or Lassen shell?

I received a Franklin half e] from Lassen and had no problem matching up Franklin halves I purchased off of e-bay. Also, the e] covers practically the entire side of the matched coins.....
Where I go, so do my coins.....
