Kurtz, Gary. Body heat. Unexplainable acts. 1990. p. 32 using Connie Hayden gimmick and a small purse.

Green, Paul: Two Copper Silver. In The Trenches With Paul Green DVD. An eye-popping coin routine with the ever-popular 2 Copper Silver coin set (it also works with Silver, Copper, Brass). There are three distinct transpositions and it’s easy to do. Features Paul’s ‘Pouch Switch’ that elegantly ditches the gaffs and leaves you clean as a whistle. Even though presented as Copper Silver routine the trick works perfectly for Copper Silver Brass

Latta, Geoffrey: Copsilbrass. Richard Kaufman’s Coin Magic. (standing).

Lewis, James: Foreign Exchange. Million Dollar Mysteries. Video. His copper silver brass routine is a marvel

Malone, Bill: Here I go again Vol 2 DVD Keeping My Money Safe! - S.A.N.D.Y. This is an absolutely unbelievable Coins Across by Bill’s friend, Dave Neighbors. Take the coins out oft he purse, gets them checked as the purse is checked. Places them back in the purse with the CSB set and asks which coin she would choose. Takes out another one as the most often mentioned, then the chosen one then the third one before closing the purse which is slid aside. Gag about hypnotizing his hand tob e able to justify the fist position fort he pop over move. First coin placed in. Then the second then the gimmick which is stolen. Now the coins travel across one by one flashing the empty left hand in the process. Then the coins are replaced one by one suggesting the the last one the half dollar got stolen which is shown to be the case. But to claim it is an illusion the Half dollar changes for the two foreign goins as the coin in the right hand is shown to be the half dollar. Fort he third time, the coins are replaced but the last one the half dollar I staken back and brought to the pocket. Asked which coins are remaining in the hand the reply is none because the coins are back into the purse.

McClintock, Reed: Knucklebusters Vol # 2 Routine #1: Three with CSB: Two cards are selected from a deck and crossed one on top of the other on a close up pad. Three coins are removed from a coin purse (one is copper, one is silver, one is brass with a hole in it). The purse is placed at the rear center of the mat. The coins are tossed into the left hand. The left hand is opened to show only the copper and brass coins, the silver magically appears under the two cards on the table (Al Schneider style). The silver coin is picked up by one of the cards, and tossed into the left hand. The left hand shows the coin both sides, and replaces it on the mat. Both cards are picked up and the corners of both cards are placed onto the silver coin, concealing it. The spectator is given a free choice as to what coin (copper or brass) will travel under a card next. Each coin is picked up one at a time and placed into the left hand. The left hand is opened to show that the spectator’s coin is gone. The cards are lifted and the spectator’s coin is now with the silver coin. One card is placed back over the two coins, and one card is placed to the rear right of the close up pad. The final coin is held at the fingertips. The right hand takes the coin and tosses it toward the card covering the coins. The coin vanishes. The spectator turns over the card to witness all three coins under the card. The card is placed to the rear left of the close up pad. The coins are all picked up into the left hand. The right hand takes out the silver coin, and the left hand shows the copper and brass. The hands close. The left hand now has the silver coin! The silver coin is waved over the right fist and the hand is opened to show it is empty. The silver coin is placed back into a hand, is squeezed and it also vanishes. The coins magically re-appear, one under one card, one under the other card, and one under the coin purse.
This is a very nice presentation based upon Gary Kurtz’ “Trio-N-Three”. Part of what made Gary Kurtz routine work is that he was using Connie Hayden’s 2 copper, 1 silver gimmick which is the precursor to the CSB gaff. One thing that we could do with the Connie Hayden gimmick is to use the coin as a double face coin as well. The CSB gaff adds complexity by introducing another metal coin, that has a hole in it. The contrast of the three coins is much better, but the hole in the gimmick partially restricts the ability to use it as a double face coin.

Mentzer, Jerry: Close Up Cavalcade by Jerry Mentzer p 74 A sort of three way spellbound routine with a handkerchief. It is done with poker chips which can be replaced by a copper coin, a gold coin and a C/S coin.

Miller, Tony. “Cheap Way” Cop/Sil/Brass. Apocalypse Vol VIII # 1 p 1016. A routine performed without any shell or any other gimmick than a C/S coin.

Norman, Karl. Close up table magic DVD. The Coin Collection: A copper, a silver, and a brass coin jump from hand to hand, appear in a box, change places with the box and for a finale the box becomes a solid slug of brass.

Gibson, Eddie: Chinese Bit. Marketed item. Three previously examined coins are used: an American Half Dollar, an old-type English Penny and a Chinese coin. The Penny and Chinese coin are placed in the right hand and the Half Dollar in the left. Without any suspicious moves the coins are shown to have transposed: the Half Dollar appears in the right hand and the Penny and Chinese coin in the left. The Penny is then placed in the pocket, but it instantly returns to the hand, while the Half Dollar vanishes from the hand and appears in the pocket. The Chinese coin is placed in the pocket, the Penny in the left hand and the Half Dollar in the right. Seconds later the Half Dollar is seen resting in the left hand while the Penny is in the right hand. This is repeated once again but this time the Chinese coin appears next to the Penny in the right hand. The Half Dollar is then placed in the right hand and the Penny and Chinese coin in the left. Both hands are closed and instantly opened to reveal the Half Dollar in the left hand and the Penny and Chinese coin in the right. This is repeated twice more and then the coins are handed out once again to be examined.

Green, Paul: In the trenches. 2 Copper Silver. An eye-popping coin routine with the ever-popular 2 Copper Silver coin set (it also works with Silver, Copper, Brass). There are three distinct transpositions and it’s easy to do. Features Paul’s ‘Pouch Switch’ that elegantly ditches the gaffs and leaves you clean as a whistle.

Transposition effect with a Susan B. Anthony dollar, English, copper 2-pence piece, and the new Sacagewea Gold dollar. Complex and more technical than other versions, but it looks great, and has an awesome climax.

Just wanted to thank Lawrence for this work of art and to move this back to the top of the thread for awhile. I would also like to know what people think of these effects as I'm looking to get one

I like and do both effects. I generally do Bob Sheets' Triple Transpo for the CSB, and the basic handling for the hopping halves but with my own presentation that's not a "which hand" challenge.

For versatility in what you get, the HH set is the best value, but of the two I prefer the CSB -- it just seems "more impossible" to me with the hole.
