I don't do the coin in bottle due to the fact I cant find a bottle small enough. But I do have the trick, and its a folding quarter. Anyone know of any bottles that I can use that are small enough to do the moves?

In canda there aren't any bottles I thought that it could be done with all of them.
Are you talking about the WANTED DVD tip bits in a bottle?

For impromptu, keep fc under watch. Steal quarter as you time spectator trying to get normal coin in bottle (ala Carney). Now you're set. If you go into water bottle, you could always pull quarter out with tweezers (but now you have to carry tweezers around with you too).

When I know I'm going to be in a bar or lounge setting (not working) I almost always put the f-quarter under my watch, just in case someone asks to see something (and there's always a beer bottle waiting to be used).

The large bottles that natural vanilla extract comes in:

are great for walkaround coin-in-bottle routines.

They're small and flat for your pocket, and brown to obfuscate the ... properties that need obfuscation.

It is ready.... Joe Porper has made an incredible real Poker Chip for the coin in bottle -- I mean CHIP in bottle. There is NO seam around the edge as all the "work" is internal.

No ads yet, but go to http://www.porperoriginals.com and EMAIL to ask about price and delivery.

Dick,
Go check out Richard Osterlinds marked coin in bottle.

You borrow the coin
They mark the coin
The coin is shown not to be able to enter the bottle
you magically make the coin pass into the bottle.
The mark can be clearly seen inside the bottle.
You put the bottle in a bag an break the bottle to remove the coin.

It's at http://www.osterlindstore.com

What's the best version for table hopping? I've checked out many of the sources and I'm thinking that Carney's is the best BUT I like Bannon's handling. Carney's is too bulky to carry around table to table, and Bannon's doesn't instantly reset. What are you guys doing out there?

Ron Bauer may release his version. If he does, it will be THE one to do...

What's a bottle? A plastic water bottle?

Soda comes in cans most of the time, as does beer.

If you are in a classy place, folks drink from glasses and are not so keen to see you pull a bottle from your pocket. Want to get a coin into a wine bottle? Gonna leave that one the table? The keys to this are ecology and context.

Did Weber publish his ship in the bottle trick?

Chris Capstone has something on the market called "Corker". This looks like a winner to me. I don't know if cork fits any bottle though, but I will know soon as its on the way.

I think the "cork" idea has been around a long time with a champagne cork.

People have been putting the cork into and then out of the bottle?

No, the ho**** cork is used as a "hiding" place for the standard object.

The cork and wine bottle approach is in print in OLD books. Have an look at Downs's and Hoffmann's works for that stuff. I thought sombody got clever and made a special cork to have some fun with a more organic approach. Calling mr Goshman!

The best bottles I have found are the Chinese returnable Coke bottles, as they have a square label (English on one side of the bottle, Chinese label on the other)permamently imprinted that provides the cover needed for Johnny Thompson's handling.

I have an extra one that I would mail to someone in exchange for a different handling. I want to apparently remove the coin from the bottom at the end of the routine. Ideally, I would like to go from position one to position three: 1) Half dollar in left hand classic p**m, F****** coin in bottle in right hand; 2) ??? , 3) F****** coin hidden under label of bottle in left hand, Half dollar in right hand.

Perhaps there is a different or better handling than my current ideal.

Ammar has a great routine for coin in bottle...

It starts with the magical production of a tall slender wine bottle,
apparently from no where...

He then corks the bottle and allwos a spec.. to have a look at the half dollar..

He then slams the half dollar thru the bottom of the bottle.. (showing both hands empty besides the bottle)

He removes the cork and hands outthe bottle to a spec... Then takes the bottle
back removes the half dollar from the bottle, and hands everything out..

Its amazing how he gets in and out of it.. It is in his 2000 and 2005 lecture notes.. Check it out...

Thank you for the interesting idea, Jonathan.

Shawn, how can someone find lecture notes outside of the lectures?
