Topic: Fred Kapps Currency Trick
Message: Posted by: earlmat (Oct 17, 2005 04:31PM)
Does any know how to get the manuscript for the Fred Kapps Currency Trick? This is the routine where: (1) the magician counts 10 one dollar bills in front of the audience; (2) hands them to volunteer #1; (3) removes 2 of the bills and hand them to volunteer #2; and (4) asks the volunteer #1 to count the bills, which happens to be ten ones instead of eight. I saw this done at a convention recently, and it blew me away. I've got to have it. Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Spell it correctly, please. Fred Kaps. Then do a search there is a lot of information on this and the book has just been reprinted.

This is the Kaps version of a famous card trick - look for Willane!

Or, for that matter, look for "The Dizzy Dollar" by Gene Gordon (who he?)...

Or, wait a minute, how about Marlo - something about "The Spade..."?

Was in the Willane Series. Boy there's a forgotten set of books. Ought to reprint in one nice volume.
