Hey,

Today in school a guy said he could vanish a coin. So I gave him one and he took it with his thumb and index finger of the right hand and stuck only those two fingers in the left hand with which he had formed a fist. He pulled it out and coin was gone. Now the question. Is how did he do that? Is it kind of a palm transfer or is it more difficult?

When I see someone perform and cannot see how it was done, most of the time I prefer to enjoy the fact that they did a good job rather than try to figure it out. Even when I think I know the method, I love seeing someone do it well in such a way that I may not be sure which method they used. If you really want to know, then approach this person and show them a few sleights that you can do. Then tell them that you enjoyed the one they did and were wondering if they would be willing to share the method.

If you're a magician that can show some skill, they may be willing to share and you can work together for mutual benefit. If you're not a magician then they should not share.

There are a couple of different sleights he could have used to accomplish the vanish.
There are a couple in Bobo's book that has nothing to do with invisible pockets in the hand. Smile

Kingslayer, if you want to know how that is done, follow the advice given above. A couple people refereed to Bobo's book. They are talking about Modern Coin Magic by J.B. Bobo. It is very inexpensive but is considered a must read for anyone that is interested in coin magic. If you have problems with a slight or a general question we can answer that. We just will not give out a method. Without seeing the vanish done I could give you a couple ides. There are many ways to do what you are talking about. I can think of at least 10 different ways to accomplish that. Check out Bobo's book and you will find many of them. One would be the Bobo Coin Vanish found in chapter 3.
