For the sake of updating:

Carl Hein and Gregory Wilson collaborated (with some added ideas from moi) on SwitchCraft...a collection of effects using the Hundy gimmick that do not simply have bills change denominations. They came up with some strong materiel.

It may be useful to add that Bill Severn's book "Magic with Coins and Bills" contains some interesting variations on the change of bills trick. Severn describes several alternatives such as changing the color of the bills to red, changing newspaper fragments into dollar bills, etc. What is interesting to learn is the varying patter that he uses for the same effect.
As always, the trick is the least important; presentation and interaction with the audience are what really matters.

Hi, so I was just rewatching Michael Ammar Money magic vol 3, it is mentioned as EZ money. Is it so different from Hundy 500?
thanks

I may be misunderstanding you question, but

That looks like an easy money effect (which can be found in a number of sources)

To add to the list, I'd include Bruce Cervon's handling. Highly regarded magicians familiar with the various versions were blown away by it. It will be in his forthcoming book, but that is some time from being published. But if you carefully search the internet you'll see a video of his handling.

Can you show a demo of Bruce Cervon's handling? hehe Just joking. I have heard and read a lot about his brilliance. I really hope his
magic can be shared with the right people.

For me, that looks like the Fred Kaps version, but he did not do the flash/snap change, but simply did it in his hands.

Thanks so much to Jeff Prace. For many of us, the making of the gimmick and the confusion about the different versions kept us from
going forth and doing this type of effect. No more, thanks to you!

Do any of you use the cranes high fiber linen paper to make gaffs?
I really don't like struggling with tyvek and want to make props that will survive regular use.
thanks in advance

Crane's sells paper -
yes paper can be printed with printers.
My objective is to start with blank paper and not have to remake and replace the props every few uses.

Ideas?
