I was cleaning out a drawer and found 2 quarters that had pennies glued on them. I apparently made them up what seems like 100 years ago, and have no recollection of what I did with them. In back of my mind, I kind of think that it was something that 'Satin' from Philadelphia showed up at a lecture he did in Pittsburgh, probably about 40 years ago.

I found it in the Feb 1979 issue of "Boys' Life", in an article called "Guess and Guess Again" by Bill Severn. Take a look here:

This reminds me of "Short Hop" by Mark Jennest. Great find!

It not Severn's ( But it mite be his Handleing of It! ) Milbourne Christopher Had it in print in Hugard's Magic Mouthly Somewhere around 1945! He called it" Cuarto Centato! "

Hi jakeg

It could be two sets gaffed to perform "Bottled" by SAM Schwartz. Hank Lee sold a newer version using two magnetic coins.

>A quarter and a penny repeatedly change places and finally the penny appears sealed inside a small plastic bottle.<
