Greg is smart about the market. Split coins have been around for quite a while. Greg has had several routines like this that uses a shell and two coins, Josh Jay has one with a shell and a flipper and then moved to a single coin and two nesting shells . A split coin is kind of a nataural progression of simplicity, pocket space, ease of use, durabilty and so on.

I did not have a coin set like this, love coin magic but not a coin expert, and really like Gregory Wilson.
This was an easy purchase. I was not disappointed, but as was mentioned, there's dirt around the front and back edges; I need to clean up the coins a bit...

Sent a note to Greg yesterday and got a response last night regarding mine (ordered last week). He was out of town and they should have shipped yesterday. Hopefully have these puppies in hand early next week.

I was on the fence about this. First, I'm not really a coin guy and second, as others have said, If you have the coins. you can learn the routine from watching the demo. But it is G. Wilson and I've never been disappointed with his stuff. I took the bait and glad I did. First you get all the little ins and outs on the download that sell the effect and second the coins (I got Ike's cause Morgans are unusual and since most people have never seen, they can draw undue attention - "can I see one of those coins?" - I've had it happen.) are very well made. It's a tad pricey but hey, it's something you can carry in your pocket and, with minimal skill, look like you're way better than you really are any place any time.

That is why I carry a real coin too for other effects, sometimes teaching them the -disappearing coin from the folded pant leg- trick.

For guys who enjoy performing both mentalism and sleight of hand magic the BLINK wallet by Looch serves as the perfect holdout! Those who own it will understand my comment. Just place the wallet into your back pocket with the correct orientation Smile

"Most" people, who have never seen a Morgan, have "probably" never seen an Ike either. At least that has been my experience. They know Halves and silver dollars "exist" but have not seen or held one before. I always introduce my coins beforehand as "my grandpa's coins he left me" or I started collecting silver instead of investing in an IRA because I can write off my investments as "work related expenses". Sometimes I hand one out to one person but usually do not have an issue. To me, it is like a stage magician introducing his "lovely assistant". No one wants to question her about how much "magic training" she has. They accept that the assistant or the props are there and now will do their thing under your control.

So, I read the coins aren't "soft"... but was wondering if anyone can tell me if the Morgans in this set are 1921 or pre-1904 coins?
I did send Greg a message, but was wondering if perhaps someone here may know the answer...

Thanks.

Why does the date matter, they're replicas?

It’s mostly to see if they’ll match my current sets, including my replica Morgan’s. Not sure why there’s any harm in asking?

All th best,

Being replicas I'm surprised that the dates are not the same. But kind of nice that they aren't although it really doesn't matter one or the other.

No harm at all, I was curious what effect it would have on their appearance. I also think of Morgans as 1921s vs the earlier issues in terms of cosmetic appearance. I didn't know if all replicas looked the same no matter their date stamp.

Thank you for letting us know.

I wish they showed the coins on the sales page of this product...

Anyone have any photos of this in a Morgan? If so could you share a photo of it? Just curious as to how the coin looks (in terms of relief / finish)... haven't received a reply to the email I sent to them about it so figured I'd ask here.

I am a big fan of Greg Wilson and this is something I wish I had picked up at his lecture a few months ago. Just received my set in the mail and spent the day enjoying the wonderful prop and straight forward but deceptive routining Greg shares.
I sometimes think people don't appreciate the beauty of simplicity. Greg's moves are so economical and natural that the routine is near perfect. I can't wait to try this out, but have some work to do before it is ready. Bravo Greg, Another beautiful release.

So for that reason... I'm out.

I recently picked it up from one of Gregs lectures. I too like his work and feel it is incredibly natural. I love his thinking and his work. So I would probably buy a lump of dog poo off him if he had a good natural looking routine for it. I mean what can be more organic than poo?
