Are the gaffs similar to those in Penny Candy which I have and really like?

Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Jun 10, 2017 09:58AM)
Similar. Penny Candy involves a penetration of a penny, vanish of two pennies, and production of a small roll of candy, The Three Penny Opera Trick consists of the magical production of nine pennies. Both are easy to perform.

Someone asked me in a PM about examining the boards at the end of the trick. Yes they can be examined with no fear of finding the gaffs.
Also for those who have Penny Candy, you can use a coin from Three Penny Opera and go into Penny Candy.

Tried your suggestion in instructions of using three dimes for the initial reveal. Worked great. When the pennies then appeared it was more startling to the spectator and me too :)

Larry, I am interested in this but was wondering if there is a video demo? Just cannot quite picture how the effect looks
Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Jul 11, 2017 08:02AM)
Sent you additional info in PM. No video available. I've done videos for some of my effects before, but for these limited run effects I have seen my ideas copied or reverse engineered. And thanks for the order.

Message: Posted by: boxjumper (Jul 12, 2017 07:14PM)
Got the effect last week. I have used it in real world conditions and it is a pleasure to perform. Great reactions from specs.
Thanks for releasing this.

Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Jul 13, 2017 01:15PM)

I received my Three Penny Opera trick yesterday and I agree with all the positive reviews. This ranks up there with my favorite purchases! Love the props and the flowing routine Larry includes. I purchased Larry's new Time Tunnel previously and was not disappointed. Larry's craftsmanship is excellent!! Very pleased with this purchase and can't wait to perform this as I will definitely be adding it to my set.

Great work Larry!!!!

Thanks so much RNK.
Finishing a small run today which will be shipped Monday July 17. Orders received today will ship Monday.

Message: Posted by: blackstone99 (Jul 16, 2017 07:53AM)
Agree. Very good craftsmanship. Works perfectly and fun to perform. Any things in the works for larger coins?

Message: Posted by: Larry Barnowsky (Jul 17, 2017 04:43PM)
Thanks Paul.
To answer your question, I am finishing the prototype of an effect with US silver dollars somewhat similar to Three Penny Opera. It's entitled The Black Magic Tiles of Merlin. Two thin wooden/brass tiles are shown freely on either side each with a black spot on one side of it. A small ornate wooden cup is brought out and 3 silver dollars are emptied from it. The coins are placed back in the cup, shook, and placed over the flat black spot on a tile. Spectator can hold the tile in their hand if you want. The cup is removed and only one coin remains. The cup is clearly shown to be empty. The black spot or black hole must have absorbed them. The third coin then vanishes in the hand. The tiles are again show on both sides and rubbed together. A silver dollar visually appears. Then a second, an finally a third. Note that the tiles are too thin to contain three coins. Essentially self-working. Set will include the two gaffed tiles, 5 US silver dollars including gaffed ones, hand-carved gaffed ornate coin box (design carved into the surface), routine and color photo instructions, and carrying pouch. Plan on making only 8 and keeping one for myself. Will update with price and when it will be available. These are made one at a time.

Here's an update. I finished the prototype which I will keep. I'll make no more than 6 more of these (not 7). One carved box was damaged slightly during construction.

Below are some pictures including a close up of the carved coin container.

Still need to take photos for the instructions.

Usually I don't take preorders, but since this is a very limited run, I will do it this time for those who don't want to be shut out.

PRICE: $100.00 including shipping in USA or Canada.
$110 International
PM or email me to reserve one
