Hello all!
Could anyone point me in the direction of where these can be found or who is making them now?
My internet sleuthing has been surprisingly unrewarding.
Thanks in advance.

Count on John Luka. Hey, I was just thinking about a handling for Scotch and Soda...I had it in one of my newsletters so far back I forgot it. I think I even posted it in an old Café thread. I'll be brief but bet you'll like it. You need a pocket a spectator can reach into for your big ending. She'll find the missing English Penny. Let's say it is a jacket pocket. At the start of the trick have a quarter and the regular English Penny there. Have the separate Shell and Gaff in a pants pocket. So, at the start of the trick show the quarter and say it has magical properties. Pretend o put it back in the pocket but really classic palm it back out (or fingerpalm) and go to the pants pocket to get the Scotch and Soda. Introduce the quarter into the shell before you bring the set out. As you talk about copper and silver, do the dodge of getting the English Penny gaff up and over the quarter as it nests and locks. The quarter is now free, but under the half. When they are given the coins with the request to put them behind their back and take one in each hand, and then bring their hands out front again...you claim to be able to guess which hand has the copper coin. Whichever hand you point to will have SILVER. Make a big deal out of the fact that the copper coin is missing. Put the Scotch and Soda AWAY, then have her reach into the jacket pocket where you showed the quarter at the start. Finding the missing Copper English Penny is the big ending and the Scotch and Soda set is out of sight, out of mind. A tiny change that gives you an extra kicker and you end clean. Wow, I can't believe I had forgotten about that. Probably because I've been using my Scotch and Soda for a different effect. I'll explain that one in twenty years or so.

Talk about gilding the lilly...in that routine, you COULD have the quarter initialed with a Sharpie. Pretend to put it in the pocket, etc. Say "It has magic powers; We'll use it later." So proceed with the routine and later on when the quarter appears where they thought the English penny was, it has their initials. I mention it because you don't have to work any harder to get this extra feature. That way they know it is the SAME quarter, not just another quarter.

Jeez, won't this kid quit? For a Deluxe ending reserved for the owner of the bar's wife or the Treasurer of the club you are working for (because you'll lose 25 cents as a "souvenir"), you COULD pretend to put the initialed quarter away but keep it in right fingerpalm. When the spectator "finds" the English Penny in your pocket, take it from her and change it into the initialed quarter with Spellbound, and give it to her..."Souvenir!" Meanwhile...you would have left the Sharpie on the bar or table to pick up with the hand that has the English Penny fingerpalmed, the way we use a wand to make the hand look safer, and for a reason to put the Sharpie away (and ditch). Whew !

Not bad ideas, but do you realize the topic here is "two copper one silver" which is a totally different set than Scotch and Soda?

Yes, sorry. On that topic, many feel the CSB is stronger...the hole adding another layer of confusion.

On that topic also, I remembered what I meant to post...either trick can be done very cleanly without having to switch out or in the regular coins and gaffs by using sleights like the fake turnover or the double-turnover where you seem to show both sides of the gaffs, but are sort of like paddle-moves in a way (they see the same side again) and in the other instead of turning over a half-turn, the coin goes an extra half turn to show the same side again. There are many...if you get one you like and get so you can do it with both hands, you have a near miracle.

I'd agree with Gregg on that. This type of move is perfect for 2C 1S (or CSB). I use one by Rob Thompson (of samoya fame). It's easy to do and with some practice is a really useful tool.

I found that with the Brass in the CSB, that both sides can look alike, and with the copper coins, that people don't know what the different sides look like because the coins are unfamiliar. Also don't call them heads or tails or anything like that, just that they are copper or silver or brass. Make the turning of the real half dollar look like your fake turnover (!)

I'm sure they are even if they don't know it yet. It is a move that is ready to be used more. I have 2 handling I like, and am applying it all the time, in many tricks with gaffs. Go David Neighbors.
