Hey guys, I'm looking for the correct "Half-dollar" that "works" with Nick Einhorns cork.
Roy Kueppers does not. Penguin doesn't call me back. I really don't want to buy/return coins
until I find the right one. anyone out there know?
Thanks!
AJ

Try Todd Lassen. He's really hard to get a hold of and it's a long wait but it's well worth it. Best way I've found is calling him

Roy keuppers sells double fold for coin in bottle. I use a quarter with an extra band.

I checked with Vanishing Inc. From what they told me was any double fold should work. I don't have the cork, so I can only go with what they said.

Well, the Roy Keuppers double fold is definitely too wide. (In half dollar)
So I'm hoping someone will jump in and say so and so works with this cork😊

I use a Tango and it works fine. When it's folded, one end is more narrow than the other, you just have to insert it into the cork on the the more narrow end. Also, it is going to stick out of the cork a little bit.

Mandy..Theres not much cork wall left to work with,
Aaron...I was just in Daves Killer Magic in Vancouver and we tried a Tango there.

So maybe I got a messed up one.

AJ,

Are you "Z" folding the coin or folding it like a triangle? I believe on his ATT Lecture Nick uses a internal system tango half dollar and z folds it.
