I NEVER spend loose change. All change goes in a big heavy glass jar and is emptied and taken to the bank every year at vacation time.

***...I feel your pain, sorry my friend...If it makes you feel any better I had an expensive expanded shell once that got smashed to bits and had to be thrown away (long story). That was a 150 dollar mistake (yikes)

Sorry about that my friend, you should use the TUC in the plastic case that we include.
Believe or not, many times in magic congress magicians came to me to ask a discount for a new TUC because they spent the other one like you.

Happy new year !


I would not have ever felt you owed me a new one when I was the dummy that spent it in the first place. Lucky I live in a small town and went back shortly after they opened (hoping they hadn't given it as change last night) and we went thru todays and yesterdays drawers. all I did was scoop my big magnet around in the quarter drawer and BOOM!!! there it was Smile the story had a happy ending, a lesson learned and now that I have played around with it all day (cause I missed it so much) I must say - I really like the idea of the T.U.C. and will now save up for either a Walking Liberty T.U.C. or a Morgan T.U.C. - thought about selling or trading the quarter T.U.C but what the heck it is a great gaff to toss in a coin purse and do some impromptu magic from time to time. The T.U.C. is a fantastic Idea for a coin gaff.

One of few benefits of the fact that UK magicians perform using American coins... we can't spend them!

... Whether that outweighs the fact that audiences are eternally interested in why you're using those coins or not...

Glad you found it.

I'm in the same train as Andre. Never carry change at all, and rarely paper money much more than a five dollar bill. If I go
somewhere and they don't take debit cards... I'm out, but that's really rare.
It's really amazing that you found it. My TUC is a Kennedy '64, so I'd be really cranky. But I would think trying to spend a
50 cent piece in this day would get enough attention to realize what you were doing.

Have played with it some since I got it back and I do like the idea of it. It is a pretty cool gaff and I see possibilities here.

I'm glad you found it, I'm still out a Johnson half-dollar flipper that has vanished into a "black hole" somewhere! I've got to admit that it I can't perceive how you approached the clerk in regards to your quest:

(Blues Brother voice)"Excuse me mam, but I'm a magician and I believe that I accidently gave you my "magical" quarter!" No, that's NOT like the "magic beans" used in "Jack and the Beanstalk!" Anyway, I have my "special magical coin finder" with me,(produce magnet) note that it's simply a chunk of metal that looks deceptively like an everyday household magnet, but it's really a supernatural coin finder that helps me locate wayward coins that run away! It WILL locate my magical quarter, I guarantee you! May I please look through your quarters and try to find it with my special apparatus? I must warn you, however, that if we locate said magic coin that you must forget anything that you've seen and disavow all knowledge of what I've told you or I'll have to kill you! Now, pretty please with cream and sugar on it, may I please check your quarters?"

Thanks! I will check this out! One last question for you, I ordered a 3CF from Jamie, is there a need to also get the T.U.C, in other words, can the T.U.C do things that the 3CF cannot?
