Hi, LF 1/2 dollar size, ideally with a WL.

This looks like a statement. Is there a question?
Are you trying to buy one? (The FS section might be better.)
Are you wanting help finding a manufacturer? (There are several, though with WL it will be a little harder.)

It's hard to help without knowing more.

LF = looking for.

Nothing ambiguous about the post.

Neither is better.
It depends on what you want to do with them.

Some feel the hole in a CSB set makes it seem more impossible.

On the other hand, with a 2C1S set you can use both sides of the nested gimmick.

I understand what it means.
I thought it was ambiguous because the actual ask (a specific one for a price vs a place to buy one online) was unclear. I offered suggestions for both, and then the OP didn't say anything (and still hasn't) for three months.

I do appreciate the translation of Gregg's question, though, since I thought that was somewhat hard to parse.

An additional thought: some folks like the 2C1S because it's only "two" (types of) coins for the spectator to keep track of, rather than 3. Some people like the clear extra coin. It's a similar choice to the "is the hole more impossible?" opinion.

It can still be "two types" of coins. Many stock routines patter about the American half dollar and "the two foreign coins".

If you're doing something different with the set (like The Atomic Coin) the clear difference between the 3 is an advantage.

Yes, I do know the options. Smile
I was more sharing since it's a factor for some people. Even though they're foreign, if you're not familiar with the coins - either to know where they come from, or maybe the spectator isn't American - it can still be more confusing. Sure, you can say silver and not-silver, but it becomes less pure for some.

This just triggered some thoughts about CSB and 2 Coppers and 1 silver from David Roth and Sol Stone. Here goes for what they are worth. David felt CSB was more deceptive. Something about the hole made kind of an optical illusion of impossibility. I agreed, but at the end of the conversation I had stated that a supposed "Chinese" coin with a round hole didn't work for me. It reminded me of a washer. David agreed with me and from that time on he used to say about a cash coin, "A Chinese coin, a brass coin with a square hole". There are other coins with round holes, such as the African bronze coin and then copper, with a round hole. Many world coins today look cheap, like Cracker Jacks prizes, and many have round holes. From a distance they all look like washers to me.

So I decided I would use 2 Coppers and 1 silver, and also at that time Sol Stone told me his great patter about the shaman from the Ancient Chimu tribe of Peru, which in his version mentions gold but I switched it to copper, and silver. Copper is the sweat of the sun and silver is the tears of the moon, etc. You should find the whole thing in the essential Sol Stone.
