Does anyone know a way of swapping a spectators bill for one of your own? Besides the shuttle pass and the gag of putting it in your pocket and pulling it out again, are there some other switches?

1 Have your bill crumpled and Classic Palmed in right hand.

2 Crumple their bill and leave in left palm

3 Bring right hand over left, drop palmed bill onto left fingertips and bring right palm over spectator’s bill.

Press down and Classic Palm.

4 Pick up your bill on lift fingers with fingers of right hand (that has their bill Classic Palmed).

In a very old Genii Magazine Dick Zimmerman published a great bill exchange. It is along the lines of asking for a bill, the guy reaches out and offers it, you take it and hand it right back. Say something like, "Oh, you hang on to it", happens so fast that it is totally forgotten by everyone. Something similar to the above post, but don't worry about any palming, just crumple it up. The exchange is done in the open with a stretching and snap action of the bill between the hands. Lighting fast. One last point take the bill by the center between the 2nd finger and 3rd finger of the hand reaching out. Just curl the fingers into the palm. While the other hand reaches for the holding bill. That hand reaches over and takes the bill being switched for. Timing is essential as well a some good acting. I think it was published in the early 1960's. This absolutely blew me away when he lectured at a Abbott's Get-Together convention.
