Was thinking the same Neil... being brass it will work with the required coin.... waiting for mine to arrive to play with the idea.

I also was thinking the same thing.

Yes, a lot of similarities between these 2 products.
You can present them as proof of your amazing ability to see through brass.

I have emailed several questions to Jake about this product and Jake has really been helpful and prompt. Excellent service and much appreciated.

Also, while I am in the UK and this is mainly dependent on using a US coin, I can see this could be a very versatile item and could be incorporated into various routines. One I have in mind is having 4 (or more) coins from different countries and forcing one using equivoque or another means. Then showing the 'prediction' in the coin casket and proceeding with an effect on the orientation of the coin and concluding with a which hand routine.

I think this could play and flow very nicely.

Glad you like the routine Steve.

I forgot to mention, to perform the exact routine I have in mind, you'd need two Kennedy half dollars.

Hi Jake
Just dropped you an email before I saw this thread. Looking to place an order for 2 of them.
I have an original Nemo Six released by Ken Brooke that I'm assuming this is based on? Almost impossible to find now and I've been after another for some time.
Can yours fit a "turtle"? If so I so could do the original routine.
Very excited to get hold of this.
Thanks

Thank you to the international customers who tried to purchase the Coin Casket.

Good News, we imported Paypal checkout service to the cart and replaced the e-commerce version. So now this is just like using your regular Paypal and with Paypal's security.
Everything is now working fine.

Thank you to all that have supported this effect and if there are any further issues, please contact us. We have a support email link on the store's site.

With Thanks,
Jake jr. , Jamie K. and Frederick.

Hey Jake, got mine today and this thing is great. I can't tell you how easy this is. You only have to touch it literally for a second. Already performed this today. Great job and great workmanship.

Greetings;

Jake, you have a winner, I love it. Quality brass work and precision craftsmanship and very deceptive to boot. The more I play with it, the more ideas keep popping up. This is what I have worked up so far:

Start out by explaining that you have a half dollar that is haunted, ask the spectator if they ever played heads or tails. Explain that the idea is to toss a coin in the air, catch it and slap it down on the back of the hand and to try to call either heads or tails, whichever they think it might be. Offer to let them guess a couple of times, then say that when you obtained this haunted coin it was kept in a brass box that prevented the spirits from getting out.

You offer to give a demonstration by having them place the coin in the box and put the lid on it, while your back is
turned towards them so you could not possibly see which side they placed face up in the box. When you turn around just look at the box and you will know which is up, heads or tails, but get the glimpse casually while talking and
saying that you are not even going to touch the box. (you already know the answer) Have them touch a single finger to your palm and then wave that palm above the box by about 6 inches and announce if it is heads or tails up.

Allow them to open the box and sure enough, you are right. Offer to repeat it again, this time when they have the lid
on the box, turn part way enough to get a look at the box and very quickly say, "I will keep myself turned around, so did you put the coin in with the side of your choice facing up? They respond yes, So now tell them that without even turning around the coin is talking to you and telling you that it is_______up. They open the box and verify again.

Now place the bottom of the box in the left open hand palm up so the box is right over the spot where the two middle fingers touch the hand. Place the coin in the box heads up saying you want the eyes of the coin to watch you close.
Now pick up the lid between the right hand forefinger and thumb with the right hand palm down adn come across to put the lid on, but as the right hand comes in front of the left, the left fingers lift up hidden by the semi cupped right hand and reverse the box and coin like an Okito box, and place the lid on the base of the box bottom and slide it all
up to the center of the left hand palm keeping the top and bottom together making it look like you just merely put the lid on when in actuality you have reverse the base with the coin in it and now hold it looking like it normally would.

now the right hand comes back over and as the right forefinger and thumb grab both parts (top and bottom) the right hand again covers the left fingertips, as you lift both parts up, leaving the coin in the left hand, and at the same time closing the left hand and turning it over palm down closed. The right hand places both parts of the box together on top of the left hand and you have the spectator hold their hands cupped a foot under your. Open the left fingers and the coin will fall into their hand having penetrated the hand. As soon as you release the coin, the right hand comes over and picks up both parts together and the left hand turns palm up. the right hand about 6 inches above the left open palm, and the right thumb releases pressure holding the base enough to allow it to drop. Because you are still holding the forefinger against the side of both pieces, and only moving the right thumb enough to allow the base to drop, it will flip over as it falls into the open left hand. You explain that the haunted coin hates to be placed
in that box and often escapes every chance it gets. The box and lid along with the coin can be left sitting on the table with nothing for them to find.

It reads a little long, but this is how I'm going to use it. Just thought you may want a different presentation to
play with. There are lots of ways of using this, you should start collecting presentations and routines and put a
booklet out in the future, I'm sure many others will develop their own styles.

Again I have to Say Thank You Jake. This is surely a prop that you can be proud of. I highly recommend it.

All the Best
Marty

Maybe I'm missing something, but how can that be done using the method for this prop?
