"Serial number vs. Signature vs. Torn corner"

Ask laymen which is most convincing. Magic is not the method, but how spectators percieve it. Just my two cents worth, if it really worth it.

Sincerely,

Magic Shaun:

So the spectators believe that we have a duplicate of THEIR bill?

With logic like that,wouldn't they think we just have a copy of their signature also?

Try this one. Bill is signed, serial number noted AND a piece is cut off and kept.

I've been doing this routine for over 30 years and it doesn't just fool the spectators... Smile

I like the idea of signed. It personalized the trick and lends itself to gags and jokes with the audience.

I think the serial #'s, trivializes the trick, into a "checking #s" just to make sure the magician did the job right. Not as effective in my opinion.

It all depends on you countries currency laws. Here in the US, writing on a bill does not mean it is worthless. Even tearing a bill, as long as the bill is over 75% intact, the bank will give you a full size bill.

If your currency is the newer plastic money, that seems to be another whole set of problems to work out.

You will have to check with your banking system, ours is called "The Federal Reserve", no idea what your ruling agency would be in the U.K.

I learn my bill in lemon from Inception by Chris Randall. Super easy to do and fools people well.
