-----spectator's hand.

Can you name some tricks/routines and where to find them?

I'll name one:

Scotch and Soda. but that one uses a gaff. I'm curious, as to whether there are coin magic that can be done in the spectator's hand that doesn't use any gaff.

:)

thanks!

The copper/silver transposition is a good start, though it's easier to simply suggest you spend some time in Bobo's.

Peter Marucci's ungimmicked Scotch and Soda.

Also, there are a couple of simple switches in Revolutionary Coin Magic.

David Roth's Winged Silver, shell coins across, ungimmicked copper/silver transpo's are very strong. ANy routine where the last coin magically appears in their hand is good in my opinion.

Fred Kaps Version of the C/S Transposition, using a Sun and Moon Gaff...

Francis Carlyle's handling of the C/S transpo using a silver dollar and a penny, with the silver dollar sized Penny for the payoff...

Somebody help me with this one - I think it is in Bobo - you apparently affect the spectators sense of touch and sight by pushing a spot on his elbow - first he CAN see and feel the coin, then he CANNOT feel it, next he CANNOT see it, then you reverse the process and he can feel, then see the coin again... Ring any bells? I'll look it up tonight, but I have done this for years in conjunction with:

A Francis Carlyle coin vanish that appeared in a Phoenix magazine. A coin is shown, put in the left hand, and the magician, who is smoking, blows a puff of smoke at his hand and opens it, the coin having completely vanished. The spectator, after the coin has vanished, holds his hand out, palm up. The magician holds his hand palm down over the spectators hand and rubs his hand against the spectators so that the spectator can feel that there is nothing there. With thier hands palm to palm the magician blows a puff of smoke at the hands and the spectator FEELS the vanished coin re-materialize on his palm!

Coins Across - you can do the final coin into the spectators' hand. This has been done in many versions, and several different ways. However, more impressive is to do the entire trick, one coin at a time, into the spectators hand. I have two methods for this - I'm sure others have methods as well, and if you are thinking along these lines, it is easy to come up with something that will work for you...

Liepzig's Pride - otherwise known as the Cap and Pence, The Stack of Quarters, Nickel Saver (Scotty York's version), Whisper (Roger Klause's version, and one of the best in a long time to my mind), etc., etc., etc... Can and should all be done with the coins penetrating the spectators' hand. Use another spectator to catch the coins and you really have an "in the spectator's hands" trick. Don't forget to look up the Al Baker methods in "Pet Secrets" and in "Magical Ways and Means", they offer different approaches to the gaffed stack and to the cap...

Expansion of Texture and the ??? I'm drawing a blank here, but the second half happens in the spectators hands - you first remove the coin of choice from the handkerchief, then with the spectator holding the remaining coin and the ends of the handkerchief, you PUT IT BACK! It's in Bobo, Tenkai has a great version, so does Vernon. I have tried all these methods and have settled on a hybrid that Jack and I worked out some 25 years ago. Tenkai was a major influence, but the Tenkai book by Magic LTD (Lloyd Jones) is long out of print (try H&R)...

I do every one of the above effects, and have for over two decades. They are solid, "in the spectator's hands", magic. They are NOT easy to do, but they are well worth the research, practice, and minor monetary investment (in some cases). Please, if you decide to do this material, give it all the care and attention to detail it demands - you'll be repaid a thousand fold if you do, and embarrassed beyond your wildest fears if you don't!

Best, PSC

Thanks Derrick!

That's it exactly. Without Bobo at hand the names of these things sometimes escape an aging mind.

The Pulse Trick has all the makings of an extraordinary little piece of theater. The plot is offbeat, and interesting to virtually everyone. It needs a bit of help, as you will see if you try it as is in the book. That's why I combined it with the Carlyle effect I mentioned in my first post. I have also altered the handling and presentation slightly in the primary effect, but you will figure that out for yourself if you play with it.

The plot's the thing! Work with this one and you'll have a helluva fun piece to do anytime any where, with one coin, no gaffs, in the spectator's hand and a really interesting, unusual plotline! What more can you ask for out of a magic trick, huh?

Thanks Again, Derrick...

Best, PSC

The top secret Tenkai handling of "Expansion" was also hidden in print in the Pallbearer's Review, which is also hard to find, but not impossible. That routine alone is worth the hunt.

I think the second part Paul mentioned is simply the second half to the Vernon routine. The Vernon routine is in Bobo's, the Vernon Book of magic (I believe) and a later version of just the second half, using a borrowed ring is described as "All Sound and Fabric" in the "Chronicles". That is also an excellent "in the hands" effect.

Kainoa Harbottle has been featuring a coins across where the last two coins arrive in spectators' hands, (it feels more like a repeat than a progression)See "Deja Flew" from "Coins on Edge".

Don't overlook a coin that bends in the spectator's hand, or one that passes through fabric into his hand, or off a ribbon thus, or Geoff Latta's "Fisting C/S", or Geoff's in-the-hands version of "Silver Extraction"

Joe Rindflesh (did I miss a vowel?) has some very nice work with coins going through spectator's hands, and Greg Wilson seems to have a certain genius for getting into the spectator's space with this sort of routine. (under the spectator's watch, on the back of her hand, etc.)

And for you lovers of dealer-made magic (there is a lot of good stuff) don't forget Lethal Tender, the coin that vanishes from spectator's hand and appears in a matchbook ("Presto Penny"?) or the penny that becomes a dime in the spectator's hand when tapped by a pen.

And finally, think about Ammar's "Incredible Coins Across" or somesuch. You know, the one that fooled Copperfield.

Oh, and a favorite sleeper: Steve Spill's "coin on the forehead" gag where the spectator frowns a dime off his forehead, but a jumbo coin drops into his hands. See the MAJ.

I did the pulse trick about 20 years ago while waiting on a golf tee, with one of the foursome I was in. I recently saw the lady at a party and she still remembers it. It's a great trick, well worth learning. Tom

Wasn't there something called "Sensory Control"? The same effect as The Pulse Trick but done with a Jumbo coin? Any Ideas whos it is? Did I get the name right? Argh curses on my bad memory!

Didn't Jason Randall publish a fine routine that used "The Pulse Trick" to lead into copper/silver transpo?

same problem here--not enough memory

Peter Marucci's non gimmicked Scotch and Soda is a fine routine. I give great thanks to Peter for kindly sharing this with me. If you pm him and ask nicely you may be similarly blessed

In Star's of Magic Scarne does a copper silver coin routine where a silver coin in the spectators hand changes to the copper, then one is made to pass through his pocket.

On Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Money Miracles doesn't he do some kind of variation to the pulse trick. I seem to recall him doing it after his coin flurry routine, anybody know what I'm talking about? My DVDs are all stored up as I was just painting my room so I can't get to the name.

Jason just mentioned that. The routine is called Sensory Control and it's done with a jumbo by Bob Elliot. I recently saw him lecture and do the routine live. I've always liked the routine but it does have some angle drawbacks for a cocktail party crowd. It can be found on Ammar's Easy to master Money Miracles Volume 2 I believe.

I do a routine where I use a variation of the Bobo Switch but instead of switching it in my hand I switch in their's (shielding it with my hand). It is a beautiful switch and works every time.

David Roth's The Fugitive Coins is a good in the hands routine.
