Osterlind has had a signed coin in the bottle out for a while now. No folding coin.

When specifically is this going to be made available? And by who?
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Just read the Lifesaver book and located the cap in the bottle trick. Thanks Curtis for pointing that out.

Ha, the coin routine is actually "A true story"...

Anyway I think having some moisture inside the bottle could solve my problem, the moisture could adhere my coin to the wall before the trick and will come off by a strong shake...
It only takes a minute to learn how it is done, but takes a lifetime to learn how to do it.

You've got a coin?

Frank - that holster may have some application to Bob Read type handlings.

Mars on the Café has a no gaff coin in bottle handling. I'll bet he even forgot about it till I mentioned it just now.

The dime in bottle works okay. Kind of have to keep doing it a lot to keep it going. I played with doing that with a cork in the bottle. Worked okay and I had some small wine bottles to use hence the cork. Play a bit and you see how that would work.

And lets not forget Jennings Coin and Beer Can in this discussion.

Yeah I hadn't done that routine since I started using the scope bottle routine. I liked the ease in which the props can be carried and the visual removal at the end. For my no gimmick, normal bottle routine, I always used a small Perrier bottle. I need to video that and put up a clip I guess.

John Bannon published a wonderful routien using an empty and cleaned fingernail polish bottle. The quarter was loaded in the manner of Ammar's.

A nice touch is that the bottle had a burnt match in it which supposedly had burned all the air, creating a vacum in the bottle. When the coin appears inside the bottle it is "under" the match, misdireting from the method.

And the entire setup fits in your pants pocket...

Which book was this published in if you don't mind me asking.

Either smoke and mirrors or Impossibilia.

I believe the routine belongs to Lonnie Chevrie and is on one of his DVDs.

You must contact Lonnie for the correct props or it will create frustration.

The effect, which Bannon calls "Vacuum Packed," is published in his book Smoke and Mirrors. There's interesting info on the history of the effect here.

Re my good friend Vinny's statement/premise to release a *method/routine* that allows a *really* borrowed halfdollar or Silverdollar sized coin to enter a *really* borrowed unprepared bottle, I really wonder re what has been stated/mentioned/commented by a couple of ppl here that should know better Smile

Let me once again make one of my -by many- much hated statements, done and made before a such release even is out.. Smile

It is NOT possible in any way to get a really borrowed unprepared halfdollarsized coin in a f.ex. really borrowed unprepared beerbottle or Champagne-or vinbottle, under performance conditions, thus duplicating the classical handling !

(It is though possible to get a Silverdollar inside a beerbottle or deslike when having access to the maker of those bottles.)

There ARE certain limits to what is possible and what isn't..where is your logical thinking and magical education??

To duplicate the classic *Coin in Bottle* under the premises mentioned is simply not possible..soo... Smile
If it was possible, we could also do and demonstrate real Psycho/Telekinesis and get in contact with Harry Houdini.

as well for YOU!!!- My own magic is styled after that motto... Smile )

Or one could contact Randi and collect a tidy sum of money for doing the impossible.

We opened the first and only close-up room for magic in Mexico with Wolf Ruvinskis.
have several new coin vanishes and routines to share shortly just as soon as I can find someone to film them for me.

Well of course it can't REALLY go in the bottle. Just as the coins don't really go through the table, etc... I can't speak for Vin's method, but my handling looks real good. I guess you could say I "IMPLY" that it's in the bottle, LOL.

I developed my handling after watching Carney's bluff insertion. I worked out a method where you (apparently) see the coin pushed in the bottle from the top, it drops down and rattles around, and is taken out ala "PING".

If you were on the street and did the normal Coin in Bottle, then after the show someone come up and sticks a quarter in your face; you could do this real quick, and it would go over, since they would have already seen it rattling around earlier.

That all being said I do the routine Lonnie Chevrie teaches on his DVD.

By the way Werner, keep posting your routines I thought your Coins Through the Table looked great.

Thanks,
Ronnie
