Really? Are you referring to Gregory's "Freakey"? That can be considered a Copper/Silver routine with keys, but has no resemblence to Copper/Silver/Brass.

If you are talking about another routine by Gregory Wilson..... then.....Never mind!

Thanks!

Bob Sheets hands down.


Another vote for the Bob Sheet's routine "Triple Transpo." You never go to the pockets and the two switches to ring in the gaff at the beginning and out the ending is built into the routine. I also like John Bannon's "Aztec Orient Express" if you don't mind dipping into your pocket near the end of the effect.

Cody Fisher's "Real World CSB" and Scott Guinn's "Pouched CSB". Also take a good look at Jeremy Pei's "Ultimate CSB Magic".

I love Scotty York's as well as Bob Sheets' routines, but the one I perform is Karl Norman's Coin Collection that uses an Okito box and ends with the box turning into a brass block.

I never understood why the "Pro's" of the day always chose 2 Copper and 1 Silver over Copper, Silver, Brass trick. Clearly the 3 totally different coins are much more visible over 2 similar looking coins that are both copper, especially in low lighting. Never read a reason why this was their coin set of choice. Was it because it came out before Silver, Copper, Brass, could it be that simple?

I recently bought Luis Piedrahita's video. He has a GREAT CSB routine on the video.

There are several routines that don’t work with a coin with a hole in the middle, and the 2 Copper 1 Silver gimmick fits the bill for those.

If you go to Bobo and read the original, by Conrad Haden.... you can work from there. That was my first, taught to me by Haden himself. Then, years after I got Ken Brooke's Chinese Bit...and then created Poker Chip Surprise. Check it out at www.pete-biro.com/tricks

The OP has probably already found a solution long ago, but I just happened to watch the video (World's Greatest Magic - Gaffed Coins) that Jonathan Gold pointed out in an earlier post and I think this would be a worthwhile investment for anyone insterested in CSB routines. Here are two links for it:

I came across a great CSB routine on YouTube by Luis Piedrahita

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD1PXVfmPV4

This is easily the best CSB routine if you have the use of a table in my opinion. The handling is just so well thought out. You never have to go to your pockets and everything is examinable at the beginning and end of the trick.

Any one have a printed copy or a PDF of a decent CSB routine/handling...Obviously (or maybe not so obviously) I wouldn't be asking if I didn't have a CSB set..You can private message me as well if you prefer...Thanks.

Randy,
Thanks for sharing this wonderful routine of Pedrahita's.
Yes that is a great one. You are absolutely correct, the handling
is extremely well thought out, the sleights happen on an offbeat. Wow, thanks again!

Can a CSB set do everything that a CS set does? Is it not just a C/S coin with B shell

In a sense, yes it is -- **except** that the C/S coin in a CSB set is just a bit different from just a regular, standalone CS coin (and in a manner relating directly to the very nature of that B shell).
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836

Jim Lewis put out a great video tape a long time ago, but it never got released as a DVD. It's too bad as it was full of great effects.
