There's no such thing as a money (or any) effect that's most impacting because a particular effect's impact is dependent in large part on the particular magician who's performing that effect. That being said, I'll mention one effect that nobody else has mentioned and that has the potential to be very strong...Larry West's Passing the Buck.

The 11 Bill Trick can be very entertaining. Just ask Stephen Bargatze.

I agree with Doug, and you might also check out Fred Kaps' performance of that effect on the Seeing is Believing DVD, which I highly recommed. Fred Kaps originated the idea of using bills instead of cards for this effect (Edward Victor's Eleven Card Trick) and performed the effect superbly, which is true of everything I've seen him perform.

I didn't see it mentioned here, but Daniel Garcia's "Greed" is fantastic.

I enjoy doing Ron Bauer's Hornswaggled Again. Have carried this with me everyday for about 5 years now.

With that being said, the most impacting paper money routine I have witnessed was just recently at the Columbus Magi-Fest. Watching Tim Conover do his version of Fred Kaps Cash was beyond awesome. I don't know why I let it get to me so bad, but a kid walking out in front of me who claimed that he had never heard of Conover and he was just doing a version of Wilson's Hundy 500, I swear I had the urge to put him into the wall. Wilson has nothing on Tim Conover.

In this routine, Tim pulls out 6 $1 bills and lets the spectators see them and touch them front and back. They instantly change into $5 bills examined front and back and then $10 bills. He asks them to name any denomination and he is able to change them into $20, $50 and $100 bills. Each time, he flashes front and back and allows them to touch the bills.

Awesome.

I agree, Mike. I watched Tim do that last year, and it looks wonderful. If you had any idea what is necessary to do it, though, you wouldn't believe it! Wilsons Hundy 500? The kid is, well, a kid! Obviously...

Best, PSC

P.S. RB taught me the Hornswoggled routine about 15 years ago, and I've used it ever since - it is the BEST version of that trick ever...

You are right, Algebra. That is a very sweet effect. His switch is very deceptive and really easy to do. I almost forgot about that one. Thanks for bringing it up.

Where can Fred Kaps Cash routine be found? I have Hundy 500 and combine it with Changeabill. If this routine is stronger, I would like to see it...

The Fred Kaps routine is published in a small book available from retailers. I believe it's called "Kaps Currency".

The only bill bit I do I found on a Jim Pace video. Basically, you fold a dollar bill around a piece of paper while it is in view the whole time, and then stab through the bill and paper with pretty much anything. A pen, a knife, whatever is handy. Then undo the folds and show that the paper has been damaged, but the bill hasn't. Very simple to do, but incredibly strong, especially with a borrowed pen or pocket knife.

The “bill in potato” trick in the book “The Magic of Paul Potassy” is an extremely strong, entertaining and beautifully constructed stage/parlour magic routine. Don’t overlook this trick or this superb book by a master magician.

Best regards,
Levent

Dear Larry:

I could be totally wrong about this, but I was under the impression that the idea of using bills instead of cards (for Victor's trick), was originated by Gene Gordon (in his "Dizzy Dollar" routine). Perhaps somebody could enlighten me on the provenance of this wonderful effect.

Best regards,
Levent

Finn Jon's "Paper To Bills" is a highlight. Each bill can be shown back and front, but not passed out. I wish the bills looked more realistic. It is still worth purchasing.

I noticed a lot of you mention the mis-made bill in this discussion. I haven't really mentioned to muhc about this so I figured I'd point it out to you. I have an effect on my site that adds a little twist to the mismade bill. The effect is called "Change for a Dollar". You can watch a video of it on my site. http://www.magicjax.com/change4adollar.html

Other then this my favorite paper money effect would be bill in Sharpie.

"Cramped" by Richard Sanders. Signed bill to marker. This is a "fool yourself in the mirror" type effect. Direct and memorable!
