Yeah man. Copper Silver tricks are some of the simplest and best out there. Very convincing tricks you can do with them. It's the only gaff I ever use. I've heard Tango's Ultimate Coin is pretty nice also.
Looking for a coin?
A coin holder or accessory?

Using gaffed coins, if you are new, Copper Silver Brass is terrific. Check out Doc Eason doing it. Many others have done it as well. Simple to do, but very powerful. For beauty, I think Coin One is one of my favorites.

NAturally, you should have some practiced gaffless effects in you quiver as well, but a CS would be a great addition to what you have, and a T.U.C. if you can afford it. I have written two new eBooks focused on its use and thrid undr construction. Its versatility and unique features allow effects not possible with other methods like 3Fly type effect in which the hands never touch.

I have found for me the best way to do coins across is with Johnny Wong
Super Triple Coins,Its very easy compared to a shell.Paul Harris does
PDQ Coins Across which is very good, hands never touch and its Gaffless.

I believe the PDQ requires a table or the spectator's hands. By "hands never touch" I mean "in the hands, palms up and shown empty between each transportation, and your wrists could be tied to the ends of a 14" wand."

No extra coins. I do three versions. One uses a T.U.C., one an Expanded shell, and one with only three normal coins, plus other effects using combinations of the above. The no-gaff version can also be done with balls, stones, nuts, whatever. If by 'video' you mean a detailed showing of every move -- no, and there never will be. A "step Video" of the T.U.C. version is available showing the sequence of moves and slights. Some videos of specific phases will be available soon -- but then the price will go up.

Learning such "hands-off, open hand" methods is not learned from watching videos, but from a commitment to learn and practice a dozen unique Moves and Sleights independently that then combine for effects like 3Fly, Coins Across, Invisible Transportations, etc.

any more detailed discussion is not appropriate for this forum. I might post more in Secret Sessions.
