I doubt the unknowing eyes of laypeople saw anything but magic.

How many times did you guys watch the routine in order find something weak?

The live spectators watched it once.
Youtubers, well that's another story.

Well, we are coin magicians watching this. Smile We automatically spot HPC when it happens.

But it does look like something fishy happens at the moment something fishy happens and I do think that lay people detect that from personal experience.

The pace of the entire routine is soft and flowing, with this one really fast thing happening. Knowing what a perfectionist Eric is, I'm sure he'll address this if he feels necessary, there are many solutions.

I thought about Lou Gallo's move as well but Eric didn't have the space for doing it on such a small space. Possibly some variants of the HPC as devised by Derek Dingle in his coins through the table routines would be of help.

I hope that everyone understands that my comment find its ground with my admiration and deep liking of Eric's work. Now it is true that top quality magic level creates higher expectations.

I definitely agree with Jaz's comment that no lay audience would notice the slightly weaker point that I highlighted but knowing Eric's taste for totally slick magic, I thought that we owed him a sincere comment... and my sincere comment is that I find this routine very interesting that I like it. It's rare to see a "one behind" plot design and I'm still a fan of Eric's performing style.

I didn't "automatically spot" it.
Eric's charming personality didn't allow me to.

Yes, I'll say that I watched it more than once before HPC was mentioned.
Did I finally catch on? Yes but only because I'm somewhat in the know.

I'm sure Eric would address any possible problems too.

Ah, the sound of magic. Bravo Eric.

Very smooth routine: not too complex, very simple for spectators watching and yet extremely magical!

Thank you Eric.

Oh thanks to you guys. I'm hoping more people look up Henry Hay's Coins up the Sleeve Routine from Routined Manipulation 2 as a starting point prior to the release of this project so you can compare the two methods. Some people may like the Hay Method. However, I feel my method is much more reliable.

Excellent Eric! Great routine!

The sound of the coins arriving in the pocket is the killer touch - and I am not a close-up person, but enjoyed it thoroughy.

I loved it! The HPC was ok, I thought. Nice routine, and the sound of the coins arriving is superb.
Henry Hay was a great and underrated magician. His tome, The Amateur Magician's Handbook, was my first ever in magic. It taught me the basics of sleight of hand, and his description of coin magic (his passion) really showed. He was a student of T. Nelson Downs, so he learned from the best.

Good show, old chap!

I'm a bit late to the party, but this was really nice.

I like how clear and straightforward it is, and how sweetly you've worked out the concept of having the coins simply arrive musically in the pockets.

Very disarming and charming.

Eric, over the past few years I've known you, it has been a real pleasure to know you and call you a friend, but on top of that, I especially love watching you grow. From a kid who wore over-sized basketball jerseys to a sharp dressed man LOL. You matured in all different ways. Sky's the limit for you, my Friend.

Many beautiful moments, but to this watcher, the hand to the pocket at :34 seems unmotivated and suspicious.

It's perfectly motivated. The pocket is inside out. Gotta turn it right side in.

Eric, just watched this again, and again, I am truly impressed. I remember you telling me this idea, and I thought it'd be a cute trick, but it's unbelievable. Well done.

Coming soon to PaperCraneMagic.Com

Eric Jones presents a full body close up illusion. This is coin magic at its finest. Four coins are displayed on the palm of the hand. One at a time, the coins are rendered invisible and tossed into the air. As each coins falls, you hear an audible clink in the pocket indicating the moment the coin arrives. This process is repeated until the hands are left COMPLETELY EMPTY, and all four coins are extracted openly from the pocket. No extra coins. No pulls. No hold outs. No gimmicks. The magic is practical for virtually every situation, making this a perfect trick for the casual hobbyist or serious professional. You can even borrow four coins and perform this wonderful piece of impromptu piece of magic.
