When I was a kid back in the seventies I got the magic bug. My parents decided, as so many do, that a magic kit targeted fof children was the answer. While I did enjoy some of the content, much of it I realized was the same tricks repeated...this made the set look great for the parents but was a big dissapointment for me. I kept my interest in magic, hlwever and fucussed my time at the library reading books on magic tricks, since the parents didn't mind opening their wallets for the occasional deck of cards.

After doing this a while I was apparently driving them buggers with constant shuffing. On an anniversary trip they went on my dad decided to fix this by buying me a coin box made of thin copper which fot a number of quarters (since I had kid hands) one thing special about this box the instructions informed me , was a rather large opening cut into the near bottom of the box to allow coins to slip completely through. The trick was to use this box to produce or place unlimited coins form or into the box. I was getting pretty good at this when one day I came home in a hurry and heard a very horrifying sound as I destroyed this thin walled copper prop.

Years later I learned of okit boxes and sondered if this was the box. I got on, nope, nice box, betfer made but not it. Then I heard of a slot bo . WOW, I thoughg, thos must be it. I got one, nice bit of kit that but it wasnt the box. Do any of you know what this one is called and where I can get one?

I have not seen that, but you can get a metal cup with that slot that can handle a half dollar for a Miser Type routine and other effects.

Many online stores carry it. There used to be a glass-glass made the same way. Either would be more versatile than a small box of quarters.

If you get one, drop me a note and I'll send you a routine

Thank you, what is this coin box called(ie what terms should I use to search for it in google)?

The "Mikame Coin Box Set" has such a box in it together with one without the slot (or opening). These are a little taller than the usual Okito box and the lid only fits the top. The diameter of the boxes is too small for half dollars and slightly larger than a quarter. The slotted box is simply called the "trick box" in the instructions. They are silver and black. Do not know if they are still available. The lid of the trick box is also interesting.
