Dime and Penny

Postby snicket » Apr 26th, '07, 19:09



Here is my FIRST review on anything:

The Effect:
Imagine your spectator's thoughts, her face only inches away, as she sees you place two coins, a dime and penny, in your left hand.
She watches your hands closely, making certain there's nothing tricky going on... but there are no tricky moves.

You ask her to pick one of the coins. She picks...

You pause for just a moment before opening your hand to reveal that coin.

She's amazed... but, you're not done. You open your other hand to reveal that in an act of pure magic, the remaining coin has left it's partner's side and traveled a horizontal distance of over a foot (only inches from your spectator's face) without being detected.

It says:
The coin now sits innocently in your opened hand... both coins are ready to be examined.

Okay I hope this is not exposer (if it is I am sorry and I will edit it) But No the coins CAN NOT be examined. My mom cuaght it the first time I did it to her. Cuase I let her examine them.

Over all:

Great trick! I love it, just don't let them examine them! Great for street, and close-up. If you have $4.00 US dollars laying around go ahead and buy it people will be amazed.
Once I made the dime penatrate a Kit-Kat candy! He paid me a dollar.

I give it a score (on one to ten) a 7

Thanks! :)

Dime and Penny is an ooold effect, a cheaper alternative to a Scotch and Soda or, for example, a non-automatic Coin Unique - most places will carry it.
