Fairly simple to perform it with a shell. Check your PM in a little while, Trooper.

Trooper, I invented TUC trying to find a easy way to perform 3 Fly, I saw Chriss Kenner doing the effect in my magic bar in Buenos Aires (http://www.tangomagic.com/pages.php?pageid=9) and I couldn't forget the effect for many years but when I read the effect in his book I started to find a way to do it with a gaffed coin, first I started to perform 3 Fly with Expanded shell and 3 regular coins, then with the Slippery Expanded Shell, actually I introduced some year ago my version Tango Flying Coin with 3 coins and a Slippery Expanded shell and finally trying to replace the Slippery shell for a better coin I found the TUC. So, I can say that, in my opinion, TUC was born for 3 fly coin routine.
Today I started to shoot my TUC Miracles DVD and I will include my last version of 3 fly coin there. Today I shot:
Coin across
Matrix with 4 cards, matrix with only one card
Coins thru table
Coin thru bill, two versions
Coin thru hand
Coins thru okito box
I'll continue tomorrow, I hope to finish this week.

Just want to pass a little tip for you. When you buy your tuc make sure it's one of the newer made ones.The older ones had the square magnet in the shell. The newer ones have the round ones in them.

You can always get a replacement round mag if you don't care for the older square -- just ask Mr. Tango

Does TUC ever sound and weigh like real coin? Can audience examine the coin in the beginning and the end of the routine?

Today I saw the TUC in the magic store was a 2010 Kennedy. I didn't buy it because my Kennedy halves are all older and bear a different design. I suppose if you're based in the States it doesn't look so odd.

Older kennedy are thicker and better if made into expand** shell... those maker who use new kennedy coin as shell going to have hard time covering old kennedy coin...

Just received a c/s TUC. It's a 2010 Kennedy. I guess I'll have to get used to the new ones.

Many people sent me pm asking for TUC walking liberty, I want to say that Murphys has in stock this coins as well all our line in Silver coins. So ask the coin your favorite dealer and they will ask to Murphys.

Why would you want the audience to examine the coin - before, after, and at all?

I have never understood this. Do you hand out normal coins for examination? I have noticed that people only seem interested in handing out their gaffed coins!

Just perform well, and if they ask to examine anything you used, just smile and say that you never let other people handle your money! Smile

Handing out any prop "for examination" is questionable -- but allowing spectators to casually handle objects is another. This is just part of "closing the door" in develponing a Dilemma. I have had great success in ahnading spectors a basket of mixed coins and having them select one for an effect, "I need a medium sized silver one." Switching in the gaff during the handoff is simple. Later you can say, "Your coin."

A suggestion that a spectator is imbuing a coin with magic by handling it is also very powerful -- allowing them to participate in the magic. Asking a spectator to "Keep this warm" works well.
