Years ago Tannen's put out the Robot Coins. It was/is a killer coins to glass. You cover the glass with a deck of cards, then a small silk just covering the top 1/3 of the glass. You step away and vanish 3 coins, as each vanishes it is heard to drop into the glass! Very cool.
Hopefully they still make it. I'm friends with Tony Spina (former Tannen's owner) and he gave me on once (gotta find it!).

Don Alan had a craftsman in the St. Louis area make him a silver dollar size dropper in a deck as far back as 1960. Back then the effect 'blew' everyone away. He had them penetrate his dollar Okito coin box and the deck setting on a glass. They dropped slowly. Really mysterious looking.

There is a version of the silver odisey made by collector currently made in Spain that is a thing of beauty. It will take coins form differnt cointries and of course the coins fly at your command, not timed like robot coins. This being said this little miracle is above 3,000 dollars.

There is an electronic version of Robot Coins also made in Spain that runs for about $400 I think. This on is remote controlled.

There is a version of the coins to glass that is in the Jack Hughes book. Basically, it is a copentro with a music box timer.

As for Don Alan, I remember Harold Martin telling me he had special copentro made for him with long fake fur to cover the slots so Don could do it closeup.
