It's a color change coin at fingertip's.
Without any cover a coin change's from silver
to copper or visa-versa at fingertip's instantly.
There is a trailer to view it at Hocus-Pocus.

I was expecting to get this item this week, but now realize it is a preorder, Hocus Pocus does not know when it will arrive, but said they would ship them out the day they get them in.

The copper/silver mouth transpo looks good, and would work well with banquet tables.

Any reviews on this yet?
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

Well I received my N3 coin set today.

Heres my initial thought: I have mixed feelings after opening the package. I don't really think calling this a SET is accurate, but that's my own opinion. The Night Shade Coin Set was a set. This is One coin. So not really a set. And I feel it is pricey for what you get.

It is not a new idea or even a new gimmick. Johnny Wong put out a version albeit a Half dollar / Chinese coin gimmick. Tango has a similar gimmick made out of a Half Dollar/ English Penny. This gimmick is made from a English Penny / Half Dollar. And is pretty thick for what it is. I will say that it is well made and does what it shows in the demo. Initially it is noisy, but in the online instruction it shows how you minimize this. I am a little annoyed that they could not provide a certain something that most all of these types of gimmicks have, but so it goes.

The instructions are provided in a link inside the cardboard trifold and are basic at 5 minutes long. They show the two routines, but no more live performances. There is also no voice, just music. I have played with it for awhile now and while it is SLIGHTLY knacky to get it each time, its more due to the nature of what's happening that can cause a small issue if you don't have fast fingers. No credits are given either. That bothers me. Standing on the shoulders of others, you know.

There are some angle restrictions, but they can be maintained, I think, by keeping the coin close and lower than what he shows in the video.


After all that, I am not disappointed in my purchase. Its a well made coin. It does what the video shows. I do like this one over Johhny Wongs version. You can do a version of Digital Dissolve. So it has merits. I think some are going to be ok with it as I am and others are going to be disappointed.

Just my two cents...

I don't care how fast or slow you are.... As long as I am faster.. -J-

Received mine today.The gimmick coin
is made really well.Mouse tape or Teflon
will be needed to keep it quite.
As Judah stated nothing new here.
Just a little different but good handling.
I do like this and will use it.It will take a
little practice to get the hang of it.
