Is there a date on the coinbox with lid solid gaff (not a solid box but a solid box plus lid) ?

Oh gosh, can't recall in his name, he was a pharmacist in Detroit with a set of boxes... "O'Korto" He called 'em Aha MILT KORT.

Pete, as best I recall that was a regular, a Boston and a thick walled - was there a solid brass box+lid too?

Maybe this will help:

Imagine you put the lid on the box and then it all went solid. No seams. Nothing but a piece of turned brass.

That is also called the plug box, right? What do you mean, is there a date on it? I have one. Don't know who made it. I got a set that was an okito box, boston box, and plug box. One lid that fits all three.

In other words the "lid" is attached to the box, correct?

No, the lid is separate. When removed the "box" is now solid. The solid plug is the same dimensions as the normal box.

What I'm looking for a piece of brass that looks the same as a coinbox with lid but it's all one piece.

It looks like the lid is on the box.

Jon, I've been researching lots of box routines, but haven't yet seen (So-Lid-Box, sounds like a good name to me?) what you're looking for.

Do you mean the lid does not come off? Have one made.

Jon, I was thinking, the lids on the Buddha boxes fits just a bit tighter than most. So, you could get a Buddha plug and super glue the lid on.

Another thing I've noticed with the Buddha box, is that if you're looking straight down, or straight on the box, you can't tell if the lid is on the box, or if it's the bottom of the box you're looking at. I haven't found a use for this just yet. But if, someone does please PM me.

In "Expert Coin Magic" Richard Kaufman credits Leon Chappellier with the idea of a solid box bottom with an attached lid.

Mike Gallo has a brilliant routine on the latest New York Coin Magic Seminar DVD set, Called O-Kort-O Box, finishing with a solid plug (but the lid isn't attached as you suggest). However, I wonder if what you suggest would look to a spectator like a lid that doesn't come off? That would change the dynamic of the whole routine. instead of a box holding coins that became solid, it will be that all of a sudden, you can't open the box. I just don't know if it would look like one piece, or come off that way. Do you think if it DID look that way, that it would be a better effect than just the solid box? I don't know the answer, just askin.

Mike, I was thinking the same thing, as a gag. first they can't open the box, then later, it opens but the coins no longer fit....

What if you just glue a lid on a normal Okito box instead of the plug? How about glue the lid on a box with two coins inside, so it can rattle, but not open.

I once saw Steve Beam do something like this with a sharpie marker. The guy couldn't remove the cap, a lady could remove the lid, but couldn't re- cap the pen.

Yes, it would seem as if the lid was stuck.
I flip the empty box over to show the bottom then make the switch. Just leave the plug there, wait a while or go on to something else.
Then ask someone to put the coins back in the box for you. The reactions are priceless.
