Did this yesterday repeatedly with a Lippincott Box. It fried them every time. I thought the good old paper fold vanish was too obvious, but it's not - especially if you let them feel the coin in the paper right up to the last moment. Flash paper would have been even better.

Don't ignore the old ones.
That's all.

Yeah, that'll blow them away for sure. Smile Even without the Lipp Box that old trick fools them bad, but when you add it, it becomes even more impossible and, thus, amazing. I know you had some real fun with it. Smile

Is this the effect where you fold a coin up in some paper, and it vanishes or you rip it or something? There is something similar to this called "Bye George" that John Legorizimo (I think that is his name) sells, but with a dollar bill.

You fold paper 'round a coin to make a paper packet, let them feel the coin in the paper, then rip up the paper - hey, presto, coin's gone. It's in Mark Wilson, but no doubt many other places.

Yeah, that's the one I'm talking about. I have only performed that once for some reason. I might start doing that again. Thanks for remembering. Smile

Steve Dusheck ( http://www.stevedusheck.com ) has a wonderful method for this using a dollar bill. He was kind enough to suggest it in my ms. Coin, form Bill.

You can learn Steve's handling from the ten dollar video he sells on his site.

Sounds good - check out the item with a box of chocolates in an older book. Smile

One selling point is that the outline of the coin can be seen through the paper (the impression, that is) even after the dirty work is done.
If for instance you fold the coin up, let people feel it, steal it and put the paper in a clip visible for all while picking up matches and then set it on fire, people can "see" the coin in the paper due to the impression.
I don't know if this really matters when push comes to shove, but it feels confident to me anyway.

I'd forgotten about that one. I first saw it in Mark Wilson's Book too.

Its a classic and very old. There are several ways to do it.

And yes, the classics are the best!!

I received a copy of Victor Farelli's 'Convincing Coin Magic' (1946) this week
and sure enough it's mentioned there too.

I have a hard time getting a good crease in flash paper. Maybe my flash paper sucks.

For me, one of the best versions of this classic is in the book "Bertram on Sleight of Hand".

Very clever, I never considered doing this with flash paper. When you get a lighter you can ditch the coin! Or even turn the "coin in the flash paper" into something else like another coin or a piece of paper that says 25 cents.

Will the box from Denny magic withstand close inspection?
