It's worth pointing out that the Sacagawea dollar coins (and the later Native American/Presidential ones) are the same size as the Susan B's. I find they stand out more and look more distinct than the quarters do - and people tend to be more familiar with them.

On the down side, they don't have the same reeding that the Susan B's have.

FIT is still a real winner! It’s not your everyday, usual coin effect, which makes it an especially unforgettable trick with a quarter. Smile

Bottled! from SAM'S The Magic of Sam Schwartz hb book written by Allen Zingg and illustrated by Tony Dunn, with a foreword by Stephen Minch, (Magico Magazine 2003) elicits GREAT audience responses.

A quarter and a penny change places and for a surprise finish the penny winds up inside a little bottle with a cork. Of course, an imaginative performer can alter the surprise finish to just about anything that will fit into your hand.

In 2004 a new & improved version titled BOTTLED PLUS (copyright 2004 by Magico Magazine) with an additional 4 BONUS ROUTINES by George Schindler hit the magic market. This set included "...two new special coins created for this effect. No skill required, the coins do the work for you."

Either or both are highly recommended.

Glad you like it Doug, it certainly is clever and just amazes people to no end. Just a wonderful closeup coin trick. Packs small, plays BIG!

I still carry it everyday as well, and when I can remember to do it, boy, people are in for a very special treat. Smile

I hope others here take a closer look at it, but in the meantime, Enjoy, my friend. Smile

Curtis Kam has a great effect with quarters called "quartermaster" which you can find in his first penguin live lecture. To me the most valuable part of that lecture is the interview. Also in his 3rd penguin live lecture he has some neat things with quarters. Lots of creative ideas in that lecture.

Would anyone like to post a review In Trick Coin Trickery? I tried but the Illustrious Café has removed it without notice. Not gonna do that again. Maybe one of you will have better luck?
