I'm looking for a chop cup load with several restrictions. It has to contain a vanished bill. Would prefer a non-food item (no citrus fruits or rolls). Would prefer something soft for quietness. I have a quick load brass box, but it is noisy and would be tough to reset. Looking to do this multiple times per night so would like to find something that can be used repeatedly and is easily reset. Fruit is cumbersome for 15 times a night. Any ideas? Thanks.

A wallet, a ping pong ball, matchbox, a packet of Lifesavers, a chap stick.

A dog type tennis ball that you cut partially open. If you make a "U" shape I bet you could push the bill inside very easily.

These balls come in many sizes so depending on the cup you have you'll have to (I can see it now) take your cup to the patco and try out various toys. (call security)

You could use a johnson mystery box and not load it at all?

You could use your brass quick load with a soft leather chop cup?
It would be quiet and the size could be made to fit the brass box perfectly so you could even "hold it out" with a gentle squeeze?
You can see an idea for this on my website.

You could also use an idea similar to the spongeball trick where the big ball has a hole in it and you turn the ball inside-out and it makes a smaller ball that looks basically normal. In this case, the bill would be "inside" the ball. Instead of turning the ball right-side out to get the bill, you would slice open the ball and remove the bill that way.
I'm not saying to use one of those balls, but you could use the concept.

How about a mini-wallet?
