Ok, you all know the rest that comes after Messiah or many different applications where the coin ends up sliding onto the back of the wrist/hand with the palm out hand with fingers open position.

Is there a name for this rest, and if not then we need to come up with something.

Anyone know who first used this rest or popularized it?

BoH Rest is the obvious choice, but I'd rather have an actual name for it so we can discuss without stumbling through trying to explain exactly the position we mean(often its mistaken for back palms, clips, ect, or mistken for the move of putting a coin there...)

Something such as "And then you drop the coin from CP into XXX rest" is what I'm looking for, a name for just the rest itself.

Thanks!

How about Back Rest?

Has a certain ring to it.

It may be called the Messiah vanish but it's in Bobo.

Bobo calls it Back of the Wrist and Back of the Hand in 'Smart Coin Trick' and the impromptu version that follows.

The Dorsal Metacarpal Concealment position. It's not only anatomically correct but it sounds really cool.

Will do...

I do want to note however I call dibs on the "Run-DMC" name for a coin effect that heavily relies on DMC rest.

Bob Fitch showed me a nice vanish that gets the coin to DMC back in the 1970s. I can ask him about this and maybe offer my variation.

I always referred to the sleight as the Torres Move. David Stone has a routine that uses the ditch, and that's what he says it's called.....

Not the sleight but the rest itself.

As in if dropped there from FP or CP(not done in the way of the Torres move).

Bob Fitch does (did?) a very convincing RH-CP->LH-DMC transfer.

I figured out a bit where you pull up your sleeve and bring in the coin between you second and third fingers in the action when we had lunch at Howard Johnson's below Tannen's one afternoon. I guess that would be LH-DMC->RH-clip.

Just so you know, when you start sticking coins together, you can get bruises back there from impacts. Smile

It will stick better if you lick the back of your hand first.

I know Jordini. I was just making a bad pun about the name sticking since this is one of the problems with the DMC rest.

Thanks

I kind like that, DMC. It's already been used in these post about 10 times already. So, I think the name DMC is gonna stick. I'll use it. =0) You know what makes the coin stick a bit better too, a thin layer of rubber cement. A guarantee stick. Do it before performing of course.
One for the money...., 2 for a pass..., 3 for a Fly..., and 4 for matrix!

Hey, I use the rubber cement thing to. I put a dab on the back of my elbow and a dab on the back of the coin. Works great. Evr think when you do something that " hey, did I just invent something?" I do, I would like to have a new move named after me. I just think things I do couldn't possible be new because of all the talented magi out there now and that have come before us. Rambling, sorry. One day I too will have a move.

Travis, quit worring about naming or discovering things and find what works for you. When you get all that done, you might be surprised to find you've invented a few things.
