I really like my c/s coin, and I also have a [ I like to practice tricks with. I have a couple of others (folding, cig-through, flipper - but never really got around to try much with them).

While I have a couple of really nice X-[ sets, I would have to say that my C/S coin from Johnsons' is a real favorite of mine when I use a gaff. It's such a simple little thing but can really be used for some great magic. I have a pretty nice effect where I use it and it always plays so well. I have many of the other coins out there from various makers and all nice to play with but when I think of the one thing I have used much more so than anything else, it would be the C/S coin, has just always been fun to play with it for some immediate magic, a really well made little thing I've treasured from Johnson's. Smile

Not for nothing, but my very first gaff coin I remember was a [ , for the old Dime to Penny effect. Smile

Todd built me a TTGF with a matching TT insert plus three other matching remilled coins in 1923 new-ish peace dollars. I'm pretty much in love, and carry them around in my pocket.

This set does most of the things I want: all the TT stuff, all the OxF stuff, the flippers great, plus the TTGF has some amazing possibilities on its own. You can also just use the four matching coins for the ungaffed stuff.

However I'd like to see the same set in Morgans some day. Is that cheating?

I’ve come back to magic after a very long break and have bought quite a few sets of coins in the last year.

If I was staring again I would not buy anything without re-milled edges. For me they make a huge improvement in ease of handling and confidence.

For practicality and versatility I like my unexpanded Barber [ set.

It’s a bit big for my hands but the most impressive coin set I own is a 1921 Morgan Ambivalence (made by Xavier Belmont). It has two inserts, a regular Morgan and a Sun and Moon type C/S insert.

I love my 4 silver dollars and shell and very close second is my OXY Coin from Jamie SchoolCraft .A good old shell is so deceptive when used and the moves look very natural.

The latest Morgan China Bit set is what I really love now. I am working on a really cool effect with an Onosaka purse. I hope to post it soon. I also have an OXF set that is awesome but the next runner up is my soft Morgan [ with 2 reg Morgan dollars for doing Homer Liwag's Coin Two! Love that routine.

This is a tough one. I recently picked up a [/ coin with matching [. I also have my C/S (loonie/toonie!) coin.

I have to say, the [/ is a lot of fun to play with, it almost feels James Bond like or something.

As well, I really am fascinated by my canadian C/S coin. For those who aren't aware, our Canadian $1 coins are gold-coloured and have 11 sides to them. Our $2 coin, however, is circular and both silver and gold (opposite colours to a Euro). This change in shape (11-sided and circular) as well as the slight size differences makes this seem totally impossible.

Like others, my shell I think is the most versatile. I'm still learning to use it, but I see more effects available using it.

I am also playing more with my Triception Walking Liberty set and am able to do many of the routines with the mix-match of Morgan stuff I own.
