How about the full Slippery Sam Combination Coin set? Two coins shown both sides, one in each hand, balanced on the thumb of each hand change places in and instant. Or there's his transpo using a card where you put a coin in a volunteers and the other on the back of their fist, and tap with a card to make the magic happen. There's another handling where you tap with a pencil.

Hi, Jonathan, thanks for the reply...
I'm looking for an effect as I described, by someone else (anyone else, really)
Not interested in his effects, though I do have the original Lethal Tender

Well, if you don't mind not using trick coins, you might look into my MB Transpo. It's pretty cool and extremely visual as the specs "see" the coin actually change right out front. It's a great value as you also get 4 other wonderful effects with it, all part of my Short Pockets download at

http://www.vinnymarini.com/download/shortpockets.html

When I do a copper/silver transposition (and I know many), this is the only one I do because it's so visual and you do it with the hands up and not shown down like most c/s effects. Plus it can be routined out even further with just 2 regular coins, even greater amazing results and can be completely examined. Smile

Geez, both of these look fantastic! ha, "who needs gaffed coins?" is right!

Now, for Samoya and Short Pockets, what individual regular coins are required?

I've seen a lot of C/S transpo, I can't remember of any single one as visual as Marion Boykin's MB Transpo

Thanks Mr. O, coming from you that's a real compliment and then some. Smile

And d-horn, my MB Transpo can be done with a regular half dollar and a copper English Penny and or a dollar-sized copper coin and a Silver Dollar. Spice it up a bit by mixing a dollar-size coin with a half dollar-size coin as the size differential can add to the overall magic of it all. Pick your poison. Smile

And incidentally, I really like Samoya as well. Very nicely done Rob.

Oh and thanks for the kind words on my work. Smile

So, does Samoya require me to buy gaffs, or included?
PM me if that's more appropriate?
Wow, MB, great stuff on the site!

Hi dooblehorn
I'm curious as to why you won't buy digital dissolve. Is it you don't like the effect or you just rather not use a gimmick?
thanks

I do an effect in which the spectator holds a copper and a silver coin and hands you one. I toss it back and forth like a "hot potato" and it changes everytime it lands in the other hand, e.g. silver in the left and copper in the right. At the end you drop the coin on the table to "cool down" and let the spectator retrieve it. Originally I used a silver and black washer instead (no gaffs).

Wow, MB, great stuff on the site!

Samoya (or the similar Klause routine Sol et Lune)requires a specific sun / moon set. The sun / moon set in a Johnson Hopping Halves for example will not suffice. PM me for details...

Been thinking about this for a few days.
Curtis Kam has an item in Apocalypse, titled Inferential Copper Silver Transpo where you put coins in volunteer's hands and make them change places. This is done starting with a handful of change and you can use a dime and a penny as silver and copper marker coins respectively. This permits a larger framed presentation of the trick and two volunteers as written. You get a third volunteer to swap the marker coins on the volunteers hands to effect the magic. The method as written, if you add one more larger coin to your initial handful permits you to table two coins under covers and have all four coins change places on command. Seems about as large a visual display for the trick as one might wish for - so I'd recommend the item in this category.

Too bad you had a bad experience with DD..or whatever, it is truly the most visual change out there. Bueno's handling of this effect is really superior.

Samoya does require some gaffed coins

Some of the moves in Samoya have been very intelligently borrowed from other routines like Roger Klause's Sol and Moon (as indicated). Dai Vernon also borrowed moves to build his Cups and Balls. Thus let's admire Rob's work and buy his video.

It's a beautifully designed routine aiming, as can be seen, to a very clean and very convincing magic. What makes it, is not so much the quality of his coins it's the magician and the misdirection built in the routine.

Congratulations to Rob and congratulations to Todd Lassen for making his coins

Well, I'll have to wait on Samoya, cannot afford the Lassen TWIAD coins at this time, and never heard anything back regarding their availability, which makes me think they are not available currently?
Anyway, MB, I just bought your Short Pockets routine...very nice, you're smooth!! hahah
Seriously, a great set of stuff for the price, really nicely done!
I will highly recommend Short Pockets to anyone who will listen, LOL
And I like the fact that almost everything is just plain 'ole ungaffed coins!

MB is amazing. His copper silver routine is a work of art. I saw it in person last week and was stunned. He showed it to a guy on the streets he was bewildered.
