Gents,

I'm writing up my version of Roths classic 'Wild Coin' plot and I'm listing reference sources for the moves that I am using. I don't know where I can find Kapps Subtlety in print.

Anyone care to help?

Thanks,

john

It can get confusing at times, Kapps Subtlety, Malini Subtlety, Ramsay Subtlety, Liwag Subtlety, etc.

It is more accurately referred to now as the Malini subtlety.
Available at dealers EVERYWHERE - RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used on the book.

Or is sometimes referred to by the acronym: "TSFKATKS", which has the visual (but unpronounceable) symbol shown below.

Thanks good one TW Smile

Perhaps we might want to go for a more cryptic visual code for our other useful coin secrets.

Joshua- you might be a few words short of the acronym there Smile

I can't put my hands on it at the moment, but a source is the green booklet by Anthony Brahams entitled the Fred Kaps Coin Purse (or something pretty close to that). Richard Kauffman later renamed it and cited the Vernon booklet on Malini as having the same subtlety before Fred had it. Offhand I don't remember which coin book in which Richard did this and I am not where I can look it up. I don't wish to restart the argument of who did what first.

Several times I have used the search function for things like this, and when I didn't turn up any results, I found that if I verified the spelling of the name I was researching, I did MUCH better.

Here's a bit of fun for you bibliophiles, it also appears (unnamed) in Bobo's NEW Modern Coin Magic. Of course, Malini almost certainly predates this.
