I like better when when multiple bills change the same time. The single bill change does not satisfy me as much. What method you prefer?

Greg Wilson's "Hundy 500" effect looks good. Five one dollar bills change to five one hundred dollar bills.

I agree it looks good. But I use foreign money to American money. I always walk up to a cashier and ask if they take foreign money. They always tell me "No." I say "I guess I will have to turn it into American money." They always ask me how I did that.

Sounds like a great effect and I bet gets good reactions. What is the change you're using?

Hundy 500 is a great multi-bill change. I tried it, however, with different colored bills (now that the new bills are a different color than the older $1 bills design), and thought it was noticeable. I'm sure the foreign bills are a different color - so how do you hide it?

Darby, you're right. I saw it with ones changing to the new tens, which were a different color bill. You could spot the bills a mile away and, although the change looks good, you can't pull it off in public because of the color contrast. It just looked cool from a magician standpoint looking at the concept.

Patrick Paige's method.

Yeah - I did it with $10s too. It worked in dark environments, but not well lit environments. I even tried shaving the inner bills, but then they looked fake (they were checked pretty closely when I tried to spend them later too). I had to get the older $10 bills.

This color reason is the reason why I decided not to perform this effect. I know that Pat Page original routine changes blank pieces of paper to dollars. How does he display the papers without the dollars peeking out? Can someone point me to his routine? DVD? Booklet?

Hey All,

There is a version that is on my upcoming DVD "Voracity" that I think you will thoroughly enjoy!

I was scared of the colour difference at first, I have Hundy, although I can only afford to change $5s to $10s. I'm Canadian. Our 5 dollar bills are a bright blue, and our 10 dollar bills are purple. The only thing I changed was the change, I use the 3D cash change, instead of Greg's. All I have to do is cover the front edges of the bills with a finger, keep everything moving and slightly pointed down.

-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

Joey, you might want to go to a coin shop to look for foreign money you might want to add. There may be other bills that match your country's bills. That is how I found foreign money.

Paper to Bill effect is also on The Secrets of Money Magic - World's Greatest Magic by the World's Greatest Magicians. It's called "Paper Money" from Mark Leveridge's Master Routines. With the method he shows, the bill is not visible in the beginning, and the bill can be handed out and inspected at the end.

I don't know if I'd use foreign money before, cause I have broken up my hundy gimmick more than once lol.

I forgot to mention I switched to the 3D change cause I could use that joke about asking "What's the fastest way to double your money? Fold it in half!" They roll their eyes and chuckle, I do it and they go blind from shock.

I would disagree, I did it with 20's which have green edges and no one noticed. I do prefer 100's when working though, it gets a much stronger reaction.

With all the versions out now, I still prefer Pat Page's EASY MONEY with the half-inch offset as used by Fred Kaps.

For me, both versions have their Beauty and Ugly side. Let's take the Single Bill change:
1-The bill is Borrowed.
2-It can be Examined in ALL the situations.
3-You make the switch again, and the person stays MORE astonished.
The Bad points:
1-Only one Bill is used.
2-You need a TT, a prop FULL REVEALED in "Night at the Museum" Movie.
3-Your hands need to LOAD AND UNLOAD THE TT.

The Multiple Bills:
1-You use many bills, and this fills the eye of the person.
2-You have your hands clean at the start and the end of the miracle.
3-The Quantity (Maybe for magicians it is not important, but for lay it is) is not the same - 1 100 dollar bill, as 5 100 dollar bills!
The Bad ones:
1-Are YOUR BILLS.
2-Is NOT examinable.
3-You do the change only once.

Maybe I am SO classic, but one of the MOST entertaining bill switch effects I've seen is "Polaroid Money" by Richard Himber!
Thanks, and good luck with your bill switches!!!
Hansel!
