Topic: Double backed 1 dollar bills

Well, I guess it's either a sign of getting old or having a magic drawer that's too deep. Or maybe it's a new trick - "The Disappearing Memory".

I just pulled out a couple of double backed 1 dollar bills (glued together with backs facing out) and am trying to remember what DVD has an effect that uses these. (Or maybe a Penguin lecture?) Thanks for any help you can provide.

Is there a more appropriate place to ask this question?

Can you describe the effect you are remembering? or are you talking of a DVD devoted to many such effects?

On another post Bill Hegbli posted that he had done an effect with them.

I think I only saw 1 demo (just 1 effect) that I assumed that it used double sided bills. If I remember, it was focused on the orientation of the bills (face-up or face-down). If that "rings a bell", let me know and I'll hunt for the source/author.

Thanks John,

I don't remember the trick - I must have made these up over 5 years ago and then moved on to something else before I actually practiced the trick. Gregory Wilson comes to to mind though.

There is a trick called bend over bills that uses 5 bills, 2 of which are doubles.
Don't know the source.

Thanks Magic President - I'll follow up on that lead.
