I saw a set of four coloured purses go on Ebay not so long ago. I think it was a Bank Night type of effect. Can someone enlighten me as to the exact name and source of the effect so I can do a search for its availability. (I've an inkling it may have been a Becker/Earle product but I could be wrong!)

Thanks

Roger

Blimey! Was I dreaming it? Anybody? four coin purses - one yellow, one blue, one red and another - er, green I think.

Any takers?

I haven't seen the particular effect on ebay but I don't think it is the becker purses. I am almost sure they are all black. I do perform an effect using 4 different colored purses based around Fogul's Second Spot. You can also perform a close-up version of the kurtz chair prediction. I'm sure if you google the effects you could find them somewhere, although the kurtz effect is now out of print. Sorry but that's the best I can do. Good luck Rodger

Roger,
Think this is the Becker Coin purse as per his section on this in Stunners Plus. He calls the routine Just Chance. Roy Roth in the UK makes the purses, and although they are described as black in Stunners Plus, he does make them in different colours, and does package a number of them together for a bank nite effect (3 or 4). He had a few sets at the last International Magic Day back in November - so he still produces them. The Becker coin purse has loads of great uses so well worth it.

Regards
DC

There's the very simple "Jackpot boxes" that could be switched to colored dime-store purses. I think that's the name. Dealers would have that one.

See, its still happening, can somebody at the Café please erase my double entries and explain it to me. Honestly I'm really not in that much of a hurry to get to 50 posts. Anyway, after an extensive search the item your looking for is here http://www.rarmagic.com/online/ I can testify to roys craftmanship as will Mr Becker himself, not to mention the guys at outlaw (no relation apparantly).

Just a word about the origin of the Technicolor Coin Purses. When I first conceived the effect in the early 80's, I had Roy Roth make them up in black leather. I believe there were 4 in the original set. It's been so long ago I've forgotten. The idea of using colors was conceived by Germany's Boradin who suggested it to Roy. We then made it up in colors. Later we swictched to black with gold numerals because Roy was having trouble getting the correct colored leather. Many years later like two years ago Lee Earle and I had them made up in black leather sets of five by another overseas maker. That's the whole story for those who care about such things. Regards- Larry
