Hi everyone!

Can anyone that ones this let me know a little bit about it? (Schoolcraft's Walking Liberty Flipper?)

Are you pleased with the workmanship and can you tell me where you purchased yours?

Thank you!

Steve

Although I cannot comment on the Walking Liberty, I do have Schoolcraft's 64' Kennedy flipper, 3CM, and expanded shell. I also have the flipper and 3CM in soft morgan dollars from Jamie and I absolutely love it all.

I got mine direct from Jamie and am very happy with it. I got it with a Dean's set, and the only way I can tell which one it is is to look at the date. It stuck once but it was easy enough to unstick.

I don't have one...but I will eventually get one. I have a friend who has a Schoolcraft Walking Liberty Flipper and just holding it and working with it for the few mintues I did one day made me fall in love with the thing. It's an absolute piece of art.

I do have the Walking Liberty flipper. I took the Dean Dill's one....and purchase it directly from Jamie.

The work is a piece of art. It easily open (using gravity) and when you toss it, it easily close. You can read more review on Dan Watkins site http://www.coinvanish.com.

I really love this thing. Hope you will get yours

Cheers,
Andre

I have both the 64 kenedy and the walking liberty flippers and they are both very high quality smooth operation. They are gravity flippers and work perfectly for many effects and withstand very close observation. I have flippers from other makers and none compare to these. In this case you get what you pay for. Got mine thru hocus pocus.

I bought mine direct from Mr. Schoolcraft. I've sung his praises on other posts in here. Using the Schoolcraft flipper with Ron Jaxson's "FLIP-M-OUT" routine, the reactions from the spectator's is startling, every every time. The workmanship of the coin is superb. Easy to maintain and simply brilliant.

I have the Flipper and a Deans set in soft Morgan Dollars direct from Jamie. After speaking to Dean about it he mentioned that he preferred the walking liberty as he felt that the extra weight of the dollar would place more strain on the flipper and cause it to break more often. So far no sign of that, but as everything else that I do is based on MD then it's good for me.

They are beautiful things to behold. Expensive but oh so nice.

Everyone should have some.

Regards,

John

I own 3 of Jamie's walking liberty flippers and they are all perfect. I also have his 3CM coin, a remilled shell and another shell. Some of these have been in use for as many as 5 years (not the 3CM of course). I love his coins.

After reading the previous posts, you should have no hesitations.

PS... I've always gotten fast delivery a well.

I just received my Dean's Set flipper from Jamie yesterday and it knocked my socks off. I went with the Barber half because in my opinion it's less busy looking than the WL. I also bought a matching shell set (Dean's Set) which rocks too. The ex****ed s**ll fits almost completely over the other coins. Jamie's an artist, no doubt about it, and he's awesome at what he does.

Steve,I too have Jamie's Kennedy flipper and shell combo. Great items and they were bought directly from him. Their ease of use makes coin magic a pleasure. I can't recommend his craftsmanship enough.

I don't know if I missed it or not, but the tool that Jamie gives you (along with his instructions) make working with the special something something so very nice and easy!

That was worth it right there for me.

Oh, not to mention the wonderful craftsmanship.

I have a Walking Liberty Flipper that fits perfectly inside the Expanded ] set. The crarftmanship is fabulous. I would someday like to add a double headed flipper to my set. I saw a magicain several years ago show a fan with 3 heads showing in a 3 fly and I discarder the idea that he was using a flipper. It took me a several weeks of trying to figure out how he did the routine before I concluded it was a 2 headed flipper. Handled right, it can be very mystifying.
