Hey guys,

I'm going New York City this weekend and I'd like to knowif anybody here already travelled to another country with gaffed coins. Do you risk getting in trouble and if they find them what do you say?

Thanks,

Bao

I'm doing it all the time for forty years and the increase in control has not been affecting the gaffed coin (which is not the case for color changing knives). If you get a question just honestly state that you are a magician, it will gain you sympathy not suspicion.

Gaffed coins should give you no problem. I've been asked about my Quantum Bender and Electric Touch when I traveled recently. When I explained I'm a magician there were no more questions.

I assume you are leaving from Montreal? If driving is an option isn't it only about seven hours? Two hours in the airport in Montreal and another hour in NY picking up your bag and getting out, flying might not be saving you as much time as you think.

I assume nothing has changed since the last time I went to Canada. Crossing the border with gaffed coins certainly wasn't a problem.

I say no problem. I have flown to Toronto may times and had my Coins in some coin purses in my computer bag. Goes right through no problem. I also took a bunch of coin stuff to the Bahamas and again no problem.

Mr. Tango has been touring in the U.S. lately and you know he has tons of Coin Gaffs with him.

Have fun in NYC. Go to Fantasma Magic Shop. You might see David Roth there.

Best,

TC

When I went to Japan I had No Problem with it! It depends on who looks trou your stuff! I just been going to N.Y. one time And Had a guy look trou every coin purse I have got! ( And for me that's a lot! Smile ) But I think it does help to tell them that you are a Magicion! Smile
