Hi,
At one time there was a coin box on the market that was really thin and only held one coin. All my searches have turned up nothing. Anyone out there remember this, or where I can find one?

Thanks!

Joe

Viking makes (made?) a one coin quarter-size boston box and a matching Okito box.

It was called the QuartOkito box.

From the early 80's I have a Russ Burn's One Coin Okito Box which holds one half-dollar size coin. I bought it at Micky Hade's in Seattle which unfortunately is gone now.

Julie, Mitch Thanks!, I found the QuartOkito box, no luck on the Russ Burn's box. The one I'm in search of was for a single half dollar. I remember seeing this and thinking, it was a waste to have all that time making a box that only holds one coin. Well now I've found use for it. But sadly can't seem to locate one. Smile

holy crap you're right!...lol Smile

but, seriously I need the thin box for a different reason other than the fact it can hold one coin.

A long time ago Paul Diamond sold a thin half dollar size Okito Box. Perhaps someone has one they want to sell or Paul might have one on-hand...?

RonJo makes a slim okito box in quarter, half dollar, and Ike dollar sizes. I have them in all three sizes, and just bought a second on in half dollar size. They are billed as holding two coins, but in actuality, they will hold three. If using something like Barber halves or English pennies, they will actually hold four. The boxes are slimmed down significantly though - probably about half the depth of a "full sized" box. Love mine. Hope that helps, even though I'm answering an eleven year old question. Haha

A long time ago someone put out a very good routine, including the appropriate apparatus; a half dollar was placed into a small Okito Box and the Okito Box was placed into a small wooden box. At this point the performer's hands are verifiably empty.

When the wooden box was opened and the Okito Box opened, the coin had vanished only to reappear in a nest of boxes, etc. Performer's hands are still empty. This was superb routining and easy to accomplish.

I think the trick was called LIPPINKITO. The instruction video (VHS!) featured none other than the very talented John Mendoza. R.I.P.

Perhaps a collector will be able to share additional information and/or want to sell this item...

There's always "Bob's Box" by Bob Swadling.

For some reason this reminds me of something from the mentalist section of the catalog. A trick where you can tell if the coin is heads or tails.
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Yes, that little brass box can be used as an Okito box but tight for a one hand move.

It is not weighted for flip on the drop though.
