I pitch the Dime & Penny set, and thought I'd seen all the possible ideas and moves for this trick, but I was wrong.

Garrett Thomas has a very clever routine on the L & L DVD that covers Scotch & Soda, Dime & Penny, and the Chinatown Half gaffed coins. He has obviously put some thought, time and effort into taking the Dime & Penny "to the next level," as he put it, and has come up with some very good subterfuges and moves. By adding more pennies, his routine helps to cover what I feel is a basic weakness in the effect. He also has some very good ideas on the handling of the coins, which gives total control over when they will (or won't) lock.

Since most of the material on this DVD also appeared on Volume 1 of David Roth's "Ultimate Coin Magic" DVD that I already own, I bought this L&L compilation solely for the Dime & Penny routine, and was not disappointed. Click HERE for more info. SETH

Bob Solari Magic has a nice routine "Strange Change" that uses this item plus others.

Check out Paul Harris' Art of Astonishment for the "Light and Heavy Dime". A really killer bit from this simple gaff.
