No wonder he was called "King of Koins" If he were alive today, he would still be king!

I, too, did not know that fottage of either man existed. Thanks for the links!

Awesome that at least a little bit of footage was caught of Nelson Downs . . . truly a legend and surprisingly unrecognized by a lot of magicians.

Yes, I found it. I had to go through the Okito link. It was very cool.

Pause the Okito tape at 19 seconds. Count the fingers on Okito's right hand (the hand on the left side of the video). It is an absolute miracle. The man has five fingers and a thumb. It is a miracle I tell you. The heck with the silk from nowhere. I want to know how he grew an extra finger in 10 seconds?

You're kidding aren't you? Of course he has five fingers and a thumb. Since this is not secret session I'll let your own logic take the next leap.

Shhh.. don't tell anyone, but if you add the letter "pwn" just before "youtube" in the address, it will download the video to your computer or you to archive .. or whatever..

For example:

Mtpascoe,
Of Course, I was kidding. I own a few of the realistic six fingers. Some are a stout metal, dating back to around 1900, sold by WD Leroy. I also have one of the fake metal palms he sold. This was a precusor to the Sanada gimmick.

I am impressed that you took the time to stop the Okito video at the 19 second point.
