Topic: Copper silver US quarter
Message: Posted by: jordanl (Jun 13, 2011 05:56PM)
Does anyone make a C/S with a US quarter(clad, NOT silver) and a copper coin like an old half penny or newer 2 pence. Tango makes one but the 50 cent euro coin lacks contrast. Thanks for any help.

Johnson did - or used to - probably still does.

Check the items for sale area. Twocan sells c/s sets including quarter and half size. His sets are beautiful. And reasonably priced.

I found this reference from years ago:
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=57321&forum=3

Jamie Schoolcraft said he had some then, perhaps he still does. Obviously you don't want to pay for custom, but it's worth a call. Jamie does work with clad coins occasionally.

It doesn't appear that Johnson still makes a C/S quarter, but you could call them as well and see if they have any laying around: http://johnsonmagicproducts.com/shop/

Also, you could check with these folks to see where they got these:

They are out of stock, but perhaps they can direct you to a manufacturer.

Hope that helps.

http://www.roykueppers.com is the place to find them. He can make any C/S combination you want, and I have one of the US Quarter/2 Pence coins from him. His products are very well made and he always guarantees his work!

TWOCAN - I can vouch for his quarter C/S sets, including the one with brass coins. Likewise his quarter-size Chinatown set. You won't find anything near as good for the price.

Folks,

The two pence will need to be "shaved" down and depending on the routine or effect, you'll also need a regular two pence shaved as well. Ordered mine from (don't all laugh at once!) Sasco ... very pleased with the work;

Check out the Allen Okawa C/S Qtr. Routine, I believe Todd made his set using some Imperial Thai Coin, very nice;

Hey, I have to say that I have gotten quite a few things from Sasco in the past and while they may not be custom pieces made by a pro coin gaffer, they have served me well and were well made for what they are. I still use all of them. Granted, I currently have all of my coin pieces done by a gaffer now, but still...
