I just received an order from the place we used to get these bills. The general consensus, that they are no longer available in the manner they were before, is true. There my be a few different work-arounds for the change, one of which I already shared in PM, BUT... they are definitely not the same as they used to be. That's about all I will share on a public page. Cest la vie. Glad that I put mine together when it was available.
Magically Yours,

I'm definitely not in the banking business and put it together quite easily. A trip to the bank is necessary, and an order placed with the US Treasury, but both are extremely easy. A second trip to the bank gave me the option of performing the routine with a different outcome. Still, one does have to put it together. I think the actual *putting together* took me about 30 minutes. I guess there could be an advantage to paying someone else for that.


Thanks for updating (your post above) where you say that "that they are no longer available in the manner they were before". It was definitely a set of mixed messages in this thread. Glad it seemed to simply be a case of people saying "oh, no problem" when they hadn't actually done it in almost a decade. Weird that things can change over that time.

I still perform it regularly but, since I still use the same set, I was unaware of the changes at the source. However, it can still be squired from the original source but will simply take different audience management. I'm considering adding the tweaked routine as another option in my act. It allows for including more audience members than the original. Glad we're on the same page, though.
Magically Yours,
