I don't usually post a lot of things. I am a worker performing restaurant magic for over 30 years, along with my Corporate Gigs. During the IBM / SAM Convention in St. Louis, I watched and then purchased Mark Mason's Shell Shocked in Morgan Dollars. This routine, and expertly made shell is so amazing, and I love watching the sheer magic in the transformations that occur, and I know what is happening. The spectators just are stunned seeing the coins melt and move. It's like an extra magic show for me each time I perform it. I have no vested interest in this, but wanted to share it. This is a great addition to my other sleight of hand coin miracles. Thank You for listening. Pattrick

I don't think you can ever go wrong with a Mason / Swadling product. I have been happy with everything I have got from them so far (and it has been a bunch) Smile

Hi guys, I am wondering if this deep dish ] varies in ease or versatility compared to the regular expanded shell. Does anyone have an answer? By the way... this is ( a copy) my first post. I am happy to be apart of the Café! What a grat community to be a part of.
Cheers everyone!

I don't know if the deep dish shell varies in ease or versatility. I'm not really a coin guy. But, this shell certainly offers the most coverage.

Good to hear the feedback. I've been actually thinking about picking up this set. Used to use a Dean's set, but ultimately I think the remilling was probably not necessary.

Should not be any different than the others.
Mt lassen and Kueppers shells cover most of my coins.
And they will dislodge easily enough.

Are you really disguising the word "coin"?! Or am I mistaken?

After all, "coin" is even in the title of theis subforum...

There's always give and take. Personally, I don't care for the look of shells that completely cover a coin.

Billy, Its not necessary for the shell to have full coverage, in fact, the full coverage aspect of the deep dish shell makes it look a lot thicker than the regular coins. There aren't really any distortion issues though.

I wonder how the nested shell looks from the under side. More noticeable than a standard expanded shell?
