Hi,

I have created a routine using the copper silver TUC. It looks great except that most of the times, people notice that the copper coin has suddenly become very 'thin' (for obvious reasons). Any tips on how to resolve this issue?

Update: They notice it when both copper leaf and silver coins are resting on my fingers.

Thanks for your time.

My [very predictable] advice is to keep the coins in motion, and maybe try to substitute that display for a fingertip coin fan?

It is an issue, I know, but possible to overcome.

I agree, you have to change (the method) that particular display.

It depends of the way as you show the coins in your hand. When I perform my coin across I the regular coins with the TUC leaf in the same hand is impossible to notice the difference.

Why is it "impossible to notice. Is it the display, the displacement, the constant motion ....?

Just like with the super triple coin or split coin the set should not be "open and on the table or in the hands too long". Show it open and then perform your vanish. The open gaff no matter what it is should only be open momentarily.

Again I agree! You can't change the facts of the gaff, so you have to understand and accept the limitations of it!

Seems rather obvious IMO

I hope this works for you. Hold the tuc ]coin (above) and the leaf (below) between the thumb and second finger,
in a fan, with the leaf to the rear. This hides the thinness of the leaf coin, and puts it under and slightly behind the thicker upper coin.
I don't know if this works in your routine, but it takes a lot of pressure off, and you don't need to be in a huge rush
to get on with the trick. This is similar to a good position for holding a flipper, to hide the thinness of the inner one.
Hope this helps, am not sure if this will work in your routine.

God bless America, and may America bless God,

Iv"e never been called on it by a spectator yet.
But I only display them in my hand not on a table.
