There is a mistake here I think because the inner part is milled in all the versions.

Thanks Mr Tango. You won't remember but I said hello when you were in Sydney. I had been looking for good quality gaffed Australian coins and was just about to contact you to see if you would make some.
Then I saw you were going to be in Melbourne. Silly me, I planned to drive 12 hours just to see you that night. Luckily I found out you were going to be in Sydney the night before.

It was a great night and I am so pleased with my purchases. As people say before me, you can barely tell anything has been done to the coins at all.

I'd recommend the TUC and any Tango products to any magician if only to see their quality and genius!!

I dropped my TUC. I think there might be a little bent in the edge. Now it's a little hard to "unlock" the coin inside. Is there any way to fix it?

The old "silk method" might work. Place a thin silk over the Leaf and force the Shell over it. Massage the edges and then pull off of the silk.

Fold the silk in half so now you have two layers of material, and try again.
The idea is to stretch things out just enough that things no longer stick.

Or do you see a visible ding, dent, or flat area along the rim? That's a bit tougher.

You could try the Bic pen method (gentle increasing pressure on the inside part of the rim where the "ding" is). Since most TUCs are not real silver - this method will require significant pressure to fix the dent - just be patient and go slow. If you can't tell where the dent is by sight, use your finger to feel where on the rim there is any lack of uniformity, then go back and forth with the end of the Bic pen (not the writing end)with increasing pressure until you no longer feel a bump.

Hope that helps.

The writing kind works well for me, but I guess you could use a lighter, if you have one. The reason it works is because the plastic won't scratch the metal but is strong enough to gently bend the rim.

A half dollar is $0.50. 2 euros = $2.75 Smile


Kidding aside, it probably has to do with the fact that the 2 euro coin is in two parts? the center piece may be finicky to work with.
