I like how the part under you thumb does not erase on the back.

Its an excellent effect, when I used to demo it in the shop, I coupled it with a Karate Coin. I'm glad you're using it.

I wish you much luck using the Dremmel. I've tried, and its no easy task. Keep plenty of bits handy, as you'll go thru all of them before your job is complete.

I made one up many years ago. I still have it. I used a 50 cent (USA) coin. It was easy to make. I used a vise and a Grider to do the dirty work.

Use padding between the vise and the coin.

The Eraser Coin is a cute routine and can be used as a stand-alone. David Roth performs it as a follow on to a coin routine. This is the way I present it. The patter about the audience wondering how a magician keeps his coins so shinny is a natural transition. Ditching a gaffed coin is easier with the routine. You need a reason to go to your pocket to grab the eraser, a perfect cover for the ditch.

The thought did occur to me that I could make one from a fifty-cent piece, but why bother? The Eraser Coin is not a lot of money. Mine was purchased from Tannens in NYC.

Hi paisa23, I don't have the link, but on Roth's DVD he gives a telephone number for placing orders: 1-800-626-6572. I agree with you it seems you could save yourself a lot of hassle by coughing up the cash to buy one. I can't believe it would be all that expensive to purchase one.....

I'm sorry, I have to admit that I have no idea what the eraser coin is. Would someone explain the basic routine?

Hey magicman899, the "Eraser Coin" is a routine by David Roth, which is where it appears that you erase the face and edges of a coin off with a pencil eraser.....

I have never heard of this, can you purchase it somewhere, or do you make it on your own.

One place to find it is on "The Stars of Magic Vol. 14 & 15" DVD, it's probably other places as well.
The special coin is probably available for purchase somewhere, but not hard to make yourself with a bench grinder or a vise and a Dremel Tool.
Woke up.

Thanks Fingers, that's really inexpensive for a 1964 Kennedy prop. If that's what you work with, it would be a good buy.
I use Franklins, so I'm still going to have to make my own.

Your welcome DStachowiak. I know what you mean. I use walking liberties myself. In Roth's DVD he uses a walking liberty and I am going to see if I can find it made with other type coins.....

I realize this is an older thread, but does anyone know where to find this coin?

If not I'll try my hand at making one for myself.
