Greetings coin workers!

I just started delving into Doug Brewer's, The Unexpected Visitor. What a great little book on coin magic. The first routine I'm studying is, The Famous Three Coin Trick. In phase 4 in the book, Doug incorporates and describes the Himber Click Pass. As I'm reading the description of this sleight with coins in hand, the first thing I thought to myself was, WTF is this! The move does not look or feel natural in my hands at all. Immediately, I think to myself, okay I have to try and devise a better method for accomplishing this. Basically, you're counting two coins as three using the audible clink. Thanks to this wonderful site, The Magic Café, I searched around and in comes, the Pseudo Himber Count from Dr. Michael Rubinstein. What a wonderful method to accomplish this! I tip my hat off to you sir. After referencing this move here in the Café, I was lucky enough to still have my copy of NYCMS Vol. 1 where Dr. Rubinstein teaches the move in a routine named, Long Term, Short Term. Does anyone else use this count? If so, which routines do you use it for?

It is taught in Rubinstein Coin Magic as well, in a routine contributed by Jay Wang.

The "lazy Himber" in Rick Holcombe's TRIO book is definitely something to check out. The regular Himber count has had a few potential problems. I think Rick solves it and makes it much simpler. And easier.

Here is a video of techniques found in Rubinstein Coin Magic, including the PH (Pseudo Himber) Count, and some other counts.

I believe Dr. Rubenstein teaches this move in his first penguin lecture as well.

Love the Famous Three Coin Trick and the rest of the material in the book. If I remember correctly Mr. Brewer does not always do the count when he performs this to show 3 coins.

If you learn Sankey's Mexican Jumping Coins Across, you have a deceptive coins across using a similar dodge as the famous 3 coin trick.

A routine that helped popularize the Himber-style false count was my routine Coins Across 2000, which appeared in Genii in, I guess it was 2000. It had a false count in the beginning and at the end. Just after it ran in Genii I had the idea of palming and extra coin at the start so that there was only 1 Himber-style false count at the beginning and at the end of the routine the count was a real count which mimicked the look of the false count ( a fake false count ). The better handling is in my Supersessions from Lybrary.com

I highly recommend Greg Webb's Webb count.
The first thing I thought of when I read your post was the Webb count. Scroll down and BAM Greg has commented.
I have used this count and it works great!
Good luck!

My Man! How are you Tim...It's been quite a long time, my friend. Smile

I knew there was something special about Greg Webb via his wonderful comments about David Roth. Seemed like a really nice guy, and really nice guys tend to gravitate towards one another, and most certainly down good roads. I might've thought he would have something of real value to offer here, as he seems to offer wherever I see him post. Smile So, definitely check out the "Webb Count," check out anything as to the art Tim Feher suggests because he knows from whence he speaks as to all things magical. Not to mention, that he is one heckuva coin man, too Smile

Anyway, hope all is well old friend...Always wishing the best of all things to you throughout the years, new & old. Smile

I should mention that the PH (Pseudo Himber) count (which is the title of this thread) is NOT the Rosenthal Himber Count (which is a false count based on utilization of the Richard Himber vanish and popularized by Jay Sankey). It looks the same, but is easier to perform and doesn't require a change of hand position to toss the last coin as with the Himber Count (due to the way the coin is stolen). It is in Rubinstein Coin Magic, as well as the Penguin lecture and NYCMS DVD series, and can be seen performed in the montage of techniques posted earlier in this thread.
