I perform a con artist act where someone 'loses' $50 at the beginning only to get it back again in a lemon at the end. I use the line "Cos you're no sucker"

I'd like to make the finale tie back into the rest of the act a little clearer. Here is my little brain storm. And as a brain storm, its not all gold!

Ideas as to where 'con artist' could make a bill appear
Sealed deck of cards
His wallet
a small safe
His shoe
Cocktail shaker
A hollow casino chip
On a spectator who was jokingly referred to as a stooge or shill.
The spectator is given a chance to win back their money IF they can guess what is in a labeless can. They guess correctly and find their note. (via pineapple surprise and can it)

In a bank roll held by elastic bands.
If signed it will be held by the bands.
Don't ask how 'cause I don't know.

Maybe something similar to Sankey's "Paperclipped".

Out of your list I like the wallet or shoe idea. Logical places in my opinion.

I also agree with the wallet and shoe. And the sealded deck of cards isn't bad either. If you wear that bowler when you work it could also turn up in the inside hatband area. Or maybe on the outside hatband. Kind of like Wilsons recapped where the cap is suddenly noticed by the spec sticking out of his ear. The bill could be folded and tucked into the hatband but left out a little so that eventually it would be noticed by the spec.

I like Jazs' idea about the wad of bills. You could unband the roll and count down or show that the bill is way down in the middle of the rolled up bills.
