Can anyone recommend where to find the appropriate shot glass that Roth uses in his Purse and Frame routine? I have tried many, only to find that the coin really does not fit well.

Thanks for everyones help!

Go to a bar and ask for one after doing a few tricks.
That's how I got mine.

It's a double shot or old fashioned glass. There are MANY to be found ... and not a bad excuse to look in the local shops and make friends. The trick however, was impressive back in 1976. Today... most knowledgeable magicians know the thing, and laymen are just as well impressed with a less difficult trick.

I was at the Magic Castle and commented that the glass in which I had gotten my cocktail would be perfect for Purse & Glass. About an hour later one of the managers caught up with me, handed me a glass, and told me to put it in my pocket.

Drink as many doubles as you can-buy a few glasses-eventually one will work

Clearly, you're either performing less difficult effects way too well, or not performing Purse & Glass well enough.

Do you guys do anything special to prevent the noise when you load the coin under the glass? Or do you just hit it dead on?

Got me puzzled there. You are pulling back stuff and set the glass down. It does have an indentation.

Yea I did away with the glass, lol...Sorry I couldn't resist, it's the truth though.

Where do you perform the routine? In certain environments background noise will probably cover any noise the coin and glass may make.

I'm just starting to learn the routine, haven't performed it for anyone yet.

What I'm talking about is the talking when the rim of the shot glass hits the coin. That happens unless you hit the coin dead on.

What I'm experimenting with is first "accidentally" hitting one of the half dollars while sliding the coin over the copper coin in order to cover the talking. I thought maybe you guys are using either a very specific shot glass with an indentation sufficiently larger than the half dollar (the indentation on my glass is just large enough to fit the coin) or have modified the glass with wax or cloth or something else to minimize the noise.
