I have seen magicians that borrow a bill, tear a corner off, give to the spectator to keep in case something happens to the bill and then the bill is tore into many pieces in front of the spectator. later the bill is found restored in a lemon, with the missing corner which the spec is holding and all matches.

I know that when the bill is tore, the corner given to the spectator is switched to match the one you want, but here is my big question. I also know that the bill tore in many pieces is not the real borrowed bill, that there was a switch. but the bill looks like a real one.

It is illegal to duplicate us currency, so I am trying to find out what you would use in these situations. I have several tricks that I am working on to use this process, but don't want to break the law doing it. And don't want to have to tape all my pieces back and send into us treasury for replacements.

Any ideas or suggestions?

I think I remember seeing the same effect as MAGIC OF JAMES said but with a slight difference, the last torn is made by the spectator and in this way I don't see how can a switch can be made ???
Do I remember well, is this effect possible ?

Vinny,
I agree with you on the Dushek Dollar. Fold a bill in half, take a knife and cut it in two than restore it. This is extremly visual magic.

The goos news is I hear Steve Dushek is going to lecture again. This is incredible news!

Where are they found.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Do to degrading health, Steve Dusheck is not selling any of his DVDs. I reached out to him earlier this year, and he was unable supply anything.

He also lost all his material do to his computer hard drive failure.

I just found out a year or so ago, that the original Bill to Lemon was performed by actually tearing up a real Dollar Bill. Remember, there were no copy machines back when this was created, not computers, no printers, nothing. So if you seen a performance by someone they may have really did the original version. Some people do not value a Dollar as much as the next person.

I found the original version in the book "The Texan Trickster" by John Moehring. John Moehring passed away in 2017. I cannot find his self published book with a search.

I wonder who obtained all those copies of his book? It is a great book on a few of his stage effects he used in the Ed Sullivan show performance.

Deposit by Marcus Eddie is very easy to perform and requires a simple one time setup.

TOGETHER by Chris Hanowell is a great effect that ends with the final tear being restored in a spectators hand.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
