I am just about to order too. I have been thinking and his final display of the coins in the American Flag can be turned into lots of stuff. I can't wait to get this thing.

OK,
The PayPal is in the mail. Where the heck are my DVD's!? (I ordered both.) My kids aren't really cut out for college anyway ... and I deserve this for Father's day, and at least I'm not on drugs and, … well, I deserve them.
Here's to a speedy production run!
Cordially,
tr

Thank you

I can see limited print DVD's selling for more than $30.00 upon release in the future. This is a very interesting idea.

If Reed only does one print run of 1,000 copies, this will be $30 bucks very, very well spent.

Not to get into it in this thread, but this is a fascinating proposition. I wonder what factors will ultimately determine what you do.

These are going to sell out by next week!! Smile

Reed, I noticed on the demo from your site that you use Barber Halves for the production of a large amount of coins. You said on Coin Ovations that you prefer Barber Halves because they are thinner, making them easier to palm a large amount. My question is this: Since I cannot spend a lot of money on more Barber Halves (they are not cheap), can these routines from the Coin Patriot be just as easily done with regular Kennedy Halves? How much more difficult will they be and would you still recommend me to get more Barber Halves in the long run? This might be a dumb question, but you never know.

Frank,

Of course you can use Kennedy halves.

Thanks Pyro, I guess I'm just being a little picky here. The reason why I asked is because I am very interested in buying this DVD, and I'm always very careful now a days when buying new magic material. But I shouldn't worry about Reed, he is probably one of the most honest magicians out there.
I look forward to learning his innovative techniques.

Actually, Frank's question is a good one and not trivial. I understand these routines call for palming a large amount of coins and small differences in thickness that might not matter for 3-5 coins could make a big difference if you are palming more than that.

Reed - what are your thoughts here?

Thanks!

Frank, as a general proposition, the Barbers will make things more manageable. As you have observed, they are thinner, and very user-friendly. However, since hand size, finger thickness, relative proportions of fingers to palm, muscle strength, and comfort zones all vary from person to person, often much more so than the difference between Kennedys and Barbers, it is impossible to say whether you specifically will be able to do the material on CP with one coin or another.

I'm sure Reed can do everything on the DVD with Kennedys. I do the seven coin production with Morgan dollars. I seem to have hit my load limit at about 11 dollars, though. I might have to shift to halves to reach 20. Your mileage will also vary.

And I thought my hands were big. I am going to go get more coins and see if I can reach 20 with silvers.

Holy cow Curtis! I look at my poor hands and wonder if I ever will be able to do that. I have very thin fingers, and my palm is not padded with much muscle (me and the muscle pass don't agree with each other). My classic palm limit with halves is 5. I can pull of 6, but my thumb will look like it's having spasms. I'm still determined though. I don't like to believe that certain hand characteristics can limit people.

I am working on 7 coins in each hand.
No one has ever taught me how to palm multiple coins, so I don't know if I am doing it right or not, but hey.
I can drop one coin at a time with 7 in each hand. Now I can't do it every time but I have just started to practice two days ago.
So give me a week of hard practice and all be good to go. LOL

Oh, don't get me wrong, I did have to change the handling a bit to make the switch to dollars. Ain't no way I'm hiding seven Morgans in Malini subtlety. Well, at least not unless it's a one-on-one situation, and I just don't like the profit margin on that sort of material.
