Can it be done with different sized bills?

Is it instant reset, or reset that can be done in front of the spec?

Are both the bills gaffed, or can I borrow one of them?

Thanks.
Paul.

I actually like the simplicity of Penguin's 5 and 1 transpo, although I recommend doing it with a different cut out c****er of the bill, namely the upper right hand.

Atomic bills is the best...hands down. You borrow both bills, start clean, end clean.

Maybe you already got your answer, but..
The bills wouldn't need to be identical in size, but they should be able to pass as being of the correct size when folded.

The reset is trivial, and you could routine it to get completely reset.

With proper routinining, you can borrow both, but the motivation seems better if just one bill is borrowed - see SWITCHED for ideas on how to do this.

Just an idea between greed and charm

Show a 100$ bill of your own. Borrow a 20$ one and explain that you will do a little game: whatever bill will be pulled out of the spectator’s hand will remain to the performer, the other one will be return to the lending spectator. Thus the spectator has one chance over two to gain the 100$ bill. Place both bills in their hand folded (UF Grant, Joshua Jay Folding) and pull out one. Unfortunately for the spectator, the performer took the 100$ bill. Explaining that this is not what magic is supposed to produce, the performer shakes the bill at his finger tips and it changes in full view for the 20$ Bill … The spectator is requested to open his hand but upon opening it, the 100$ bill changed for a One Billion dollar bill: a prediction of their future in business and a lucky charm. Offer to repair the problem but do a mis-made bill trick. The Billion Dollar bill ends up being mis-made. Ask them if they want to solve the problem at home exchanging their 20$ for the lucky 1 Billion $ bill or if they want their bill back.

Now the challenge is to do 10 successful table per evening. The beauty is that you can do this on top of what you get paid for performing since it is not like asking for a tip...
