Hey guys, I was just wondering what some of your favorite routines might be that involve a [. You see, I just ordered a schoolcraft set of morgans, and I'm pretty excited about getting them. It would be great if we made a compilation of all the best routines. I guess I'll start off:

Doug Brewers' Coins Accross from Unexpected Visitor 2.

It's the best plot of any coins across I've seen.

I'm really not a coin guy, but am getting more into it. It wasn't too long ago that I could watch about 10 minutes of coin magic before I was bored stiff. I have 2 go to pieces I use all the time. Charming Chinese Challenge by Troy Hooser, and Roth's Shell Coins Across. Both get wonderful reactions every time.

My vote is for coins through the table, J.B. Bobo version with a shot glass. It's a classic and I always got great reactions with it.

I have a lot of fun joining Homer Liwag's Cointwo with Gary Jones' GJ 3 fly. I don't know if others here with more experience would say this is the best, but I really enjoy it.

As always, any routine which physically and mentally involves the spectators and places me on their side.

I started with Paul Gertner's coin to the spectators hand, studied Derek Dingle's one (but I don't feel safe with the purse palm either because of my "windows" or if I squeezed too tight the coin sometimes falls - and yes I tried several types of coins). Finally I designed my own routine with the hands seemingly never touching one another (the big weakness of David Roth's coins across routine).

Then I offer an (alleged) ancient double facer made to order for a cheat and found in an antique shop, which can show either the double face or the double tail without switch but it's easy not to get caught because the second coin (I'm using only a flipper in one hand) cannot be seen because I (allegedly still) can switch it without anyone seeing it. And if they want to see the other hand they'll see only a Chinese coin and a centavo (I'm using my S/C/B set for the right hand). The routine is set so that theey can help me in holding the coins as the routine goes along (a nicer way than asking them to examine the coins, which they do anyway in this routine).

Then I use my chameleon skin purse routine which is a purse frame routine where up to seven coins appear as I'm getting help from a spectator (without having to go to my pockets) holding the purse frame open.

I sometimes offer a routine derived from Al Schneider's Chink A Chink with Dean Dill and Doug Conn technique but the coins are lined up in reverse T formation and go one by one towards the spectators.

The last routine I do is a distant variant from Tommy Wonder's Counterfeit coins. A really magical effect brilliantly described in Spectacle by Stephen Minch and in the Books of Wonder (probably the best coin routine on the market)

My Cylinder and Coins which is still under (very advanced) construction. It works with a solid metal napkin ring and the coins magically stacking into the ring are heard arriving. They are shown half way through (two coins with my wedding band on top) and at the end (five coins with my wedding band still on top). I owe credit to many magicians for this one. David Roth, John Carney, Curtis Kam, Michael Rubinstein, Gaetan Bloom come to mind but David Neighbors on one had aand Kent Gunn on the other have indirect responsibility as well...

My pillbox routine which is a hinged Boston Box with a closing device and that seem to steal precious coins whenever I visit my numismatic. Since the guy is a friend I have to force the box to give the coins back to my friend...

I do like Homer Liwag's Coin Two but have not worked a script involving the audience for it as yet .

I love watching David Roth, Mickey Silver, Dean Dill, Mike Gallo, Johnny Thompson, Eric Jones, Tim Feher, Shoot Ogawa and Apollo Robbins, Marion Brodkin, Reed McLintock, Rannie "The Boss" from Philippines, Kainoa Harbottle (for his phenomenal technique and despite his mildly arrogant attitude), Doug Brewer and some others that I'm forgetting...
I also love watching over and over again the videos of my late friend Al Goshman with his salt shakers, teh footage of my late master Tony Slydini and the ones of Andrew Galloway on Ramsay

Lawrence,
No I have not seen Dean Dill's variant, where can this be seen, I love this effect it has always killed, I'm very interested to see what changes Dean has made.
Which book or DVD do I now have to seek?

Thanks,

Gerald

My favorite is in Barrie Richardsons Act Two called "But There's More," I believe.

Unbelievable mental routine that plays big for stage!

Hi Vinny,

This is a great combination and I too have played around with both. Iain Moran has a great idea on his Covert Magic DVD which I've now added to the above - When all the coins have vanished and you cleanly show your hands empty (which they really are) you look at the audience then look back at your hands (do a double take) and all the coins have returned. The gimmick Iain employs only take seconds to make and works like a dream. You will need to invest in more (3) silver dollars but it's certainly worth the extra expense IMO.

Please feel free to PM me for more details.

Kind regards,

Gary Jones.

It's no coin across on this DVD???



David Roth's coin across is always nice, but I will also recommend Dan Harlan's "Rising Dough" and Mark Leveridge's "Slo Mo". (two great, but a little different [ routines)
You will find them all three on "The secrets of EXPANDED SH**LS" from World Greatest Magic.

thanks for the tip Morten. I have a few expanded shell sets, but really don't use them. I just ordered this DVD. Looks like some good material!
