It is not uncommon a spectator might say "Can I see that?" after you have just performed a trick. Carrying around a duplicate that is not fixed can add to the "wow factor" when you allow the spectator to examine duplicate.

Some examples of this are "floating match stick with playing card," "Haunted Doll," "Hot Rod."

Which other examples can you think of?

If you're using gaffed coins, you always have to switch them out at the end. You start to put them away, then say, Oh, did you want to see the coins. Giving them the perfectly innocent ones.

You avoid the question "Can I see that?" by simply tossing down the "whatever" as now unimportant to you. Perhaps allow the spectator to put the cards back in the box, or the coins back in the coin purse to help you move on to the next trick. Do NOT ever say "Oh, did you want to see that?" Otherwise you'll have to say it for everything. Just discard the examinable props and allow the spectator to pick them up and put them away for you, or some other ruse that doesn't require you to acknowledge that you care about examination of whatever you are using.
