I've always been intrigued with the dollar bill serial devination effect. I just recieved Bryn's new effect simply called $ (dollar sign).

It is the devination of a serial # and the mint where the bill was printed on a one dollar bill.
What sets this apart from 99% of the similar effects is, there is no switch of the bill the spec chooses. They choose the bill and it stays in their hand.

The handling is explained in detail in the instructions and the method is nothing I have seen before.

You basically pull out a stack of 5 or 6 bills from your wallet ( ungaffed real bills) hand them to the spec face down (serial # side down) and have them mix the bills up and choose one.

You can have your back turned or be standing several feet away.

If you'd like to devine a serial number without doing a switch Bryn has come up with an ingenious method for doing it. It's very cool.

Hi guys. Rick, thank you very much for the kind words and I am glad you like it!

The particulars & ad will be on my site later this morning. The actual effect is as Rick describes it and I'll cut-and-paste the wording on the packaging at the end of this post.

Pricing is $39 pp in the US ($3 more anywhere else in the world) and it was a compliment to be told by someone that will be promoting this on their site that I could charge more.

Jheff from Marketplace of the Mind ( http://jheff.com/jmom.html ) will be advertising this on his site soon. Here is what he has said about the effect:

"$: This is an incredibly clever idea. It's rare to get hold of a solid piece of stunning mentalism that can always be in your pocket and always ready to go. The bills can be examined and re-set in seconds. Each set is handmade, unique, and ready-to-perform, and that makes this product incredibly fair for the value. I really like this and highly recommend it."

I certainly appreciate his review and that was written when I was entertaining charging about $50. Each set does takes some time and expense to assemble. Included is six real US Dollars.

A lot of you know I was deployed with the Army last year (thanks for all the support, bty) and in between patrols I had a lot of time to sit, think, and write mentalism. This is one of several routines I devised and the first of a few I will be releasing shortly. I'm really excited about it and the reactions it gets! I assure you it has been real-world tested many times, is easy to do, and goes over very well. Also, as with all my effects, I offer a money-back guarantee if you are dissatisfied for any reason at all.

Thank you for the interest and here is the text from the back of the packaging:

"$ Is a dollar bill serial number divination.

What sets this apart is that there is absolutely no switch of the bill.

The spectator is handed a stack of bills,
genuinely mixes them and selects any one.

The mentalist, who has been turned around the entire time, is still able to divine the serial number on the bill they are holding!

*Includes real us currency
*All of the serials numbers are very different and not even close to each other
*Includes a method and gaff for using borrowed bills
*Perform close-up or stage
*All the bills are examinable"

Thanks,
Bryn

Bryn is a very good friend of mine, but I want you to know that in no way biases my review of some of his products.

$ is extremely clever and practical. I will be traveling to Hawaii in a couple of weeks and plan to use it in my trade show work.

"The Notebook" offers all kind of variations. I have a new video shoot coming up this summer and I may very well, with Bryn's persmission, use a variation of this on it.

Finally, "The Business Card Prediction" is simple and yet killer. Based on a number of proven principles, the combination is knockout. I have a few different ideas on presentation and showed one of them to my wife this morning. As you can imagine, she is a bit jaded when it comes to new mentalism, but her reaction when I turned over the card was one of real astonishment.

Bryn is a totally honorable guy and researches in great depth anything he puts out. You can be sure that when you purchase one of his products, you WILL be getting something new, different, and just plain GOOD!

Evolve,

I'm sure that is what Richard meant and dang it, wish he hadn't said it now:) I've been using BCP for a few years now and if I have nothing else with me, I usually always have that in my top pocket or wallet.

Sorry Candini, but you can't hold back good stuff!

And, yes, the Business Coin Prediction. Sorry about that!

Business Coin Prediction looks similar to Positive and Negative.
Is there a significant difference?

Any way of doing this with non U.S. currency? Like pound sterling?

Hello everyone.

First, I want to thank Richard for taking the time to write up his opinions of a few of my effects. I am very aware of his schedule and it was most appreciated.

To answer a couple questions:

CoinMan21: The BusinessCoin Prediction premise is similar to Max's version but, yes, there is a signifigant difference. There are a couple threads here on BusinessCoin and a search should give you all the info. you need.

David: Ahhh....the notebook. Richard is talking about a billet notebook I sent to him. I tried to find one for sale, could not, so I designed one to meet my specific requirements. I was very creative and named it THE NOTEBOOK. hehe.. It is a simple Mead sprial-bound pocket notebook that I have gimmicked to be able to be shown front AND back yet allows the index to be easilly utilized. I packaged it up with photo-illustrated instructions & an included Astrological Sign routine in which I teach a retention-of-vison type billet switch that uses the notebook itself. I wasn't sure if I was going to advertise it or not because it is a pain in the @** to make up. However, since I have the instructions done I will make them up on an as-ordered basis for anyone that wants one for $30pp. My standard refund, of course, is offered. I also sent one to Jheff of Marketplace of the Mind and here is what he said:
" This is a very nicely made device for mentalists and it's great that you're offering one. Though this may not be a new idea, Bryn has come up with some very nice touches in offering this well-made prop. There's also some great thinking behind the included astrology routine. If you use, or can use, or want to use, pocket memo books in your act, then you'll definitely want to get this."

Loz: "Any way of doing this with non U.S. currency? Like pound sterling?"
No. However, there is no reason for you NOT to use foreign currency. It can be a real intention grabber. I actually have my Predator Wallet, which is my everyday wallet, set up for the included routine using Iraqi money. The effect is still the same.

I want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement on my effects. Jheff has actually featured "$" in his newsletter and that was a thrill as well!

Please PM or email any question.

Thanks,
Bryn

$ does sound good. The Scribe is something I've been looking for too. I'll get both items soon.

I like BusinessCoin Prediction. I found that I will often get a direct hit when using real coins.

Bryn provides prompt service. I received BusinessCoin Prediction in less than two weeks while Bryn was in Iraq!! Wheras, I've actually waited weeks and months to receive items that were shipped from within the U.S. (A couple of which were within driving distance)

WOW!!!! That pretty much sums up my feelings on this great effect.

First off, I ordered it and then within a couple hours I was notified by Bryn that it was already IN THE MAIL! I have been working with it for a day or two and have discovered various presentations and ways to do this. Bryn makes it easy to do this multiple ways by giving you extra "stuff". Should you decide to do with borrowed bills you can but I am not sure that is necessary. Although I have worked up one presentaion where I do use borrowed bills and one where I don't. Just depends on the situation.

This is a very clever idea and one that will have many of us saying, "why didn't I think of that?" It's so simple... I just love stuff like this!

Congratulations Bryn on a great offering!

Best to all,

Bobby

$ sounds like killer stuff! Awhile back, I purchased one of Bryn's Casinos Decks. If he still has any available, I recommend that as well.

Don't stop Bryn! Send us more!

Hello folks.

I have updated the site to reflect that I am back home, and back in business!
My PayPal is: diveteam@adelphia.net

Bobby K: Thanks for the comments. I am glad you enjoy it!. (Through PMs he has given me a nice handling alternative and if you PM him and prove you have this I am sure he would be glad to share.)

jlibby: "$ sounds like killer stuff! Awhile back, I purchased one of Bryn's Casinos Decks. If he still has any available, I recommend that as well.

Don't stop Bryn! Send us more!"


The Casino Decks are all gone and I may do another 52 deck run in future but as of now I have no plans to do so. If I do another 52-run of anything it will certainly be "DOUBLE DOWN."

Some have asked if this can be done with foreign currency. I initially replied that through the unique principles involved that it could not. However, Jheff from Market Place of the Mind had come up with a brilliant routining where foreign currency CAN be used. PM or email him showing that you have this and he may tip it. It is good stuff.

Thanks, and please PM or email any questions or ideas.

Bryn
