I love this subject!!! Here are a few of my favorites:

**** Bill Denomination Change
- $100 BILL SWITCH (Ammar's Handling):
This is the classic. Also, use the same method for $10 to 2 $5's.... or Rip a $1 into eighths and restore it, etc.
- GREED (Garcia's Handling)
- $5 TO $1 (Not too sure who created this, but the 2 bills are folded and both bills go into the spectator's hand. Magician removes the $5 (he shows the $5 he took) and shakes it. The spectator has the $5 now and the Magician has the $1.)

**** Pencil Thru Bill:
- MISLED (Wenk's Handling)
- EAST MEETS WEST MEETS SOUTH (Harkey & Anderson's Handling)

***** Bill Thru Bill:
- GHOST BILLS (Mayne's Handling)


A great book collection is from the late, great MIKE BORNSTEIN. He wrote 5 books of just the one subject of PAPER MONEY that was later condensed into 1 book. It is a MUST for anyone interested in this subject. Many of the effects are things you have to make, however, he has thought up some real clever ideas... FLOATING BILL, BILL TO MATCH TO REVEAL SELECTED CARD, BILL TO DECK OF BRAINWAVE CARDS, POLARAID BILLS, STRETCHING A BILL, HYDROSTATIC BILL, etc. etc. etc.


I am just waiting patiently now for Daniel Garcia's FRAUD to add to my Paper Money Routines!!!!
You know how to make God laugh?........... Tell him your plans!!!

I need a source and name on this one. Please post AND PM me on this one. I want to contact the creator and thank him or her, personally.

It's my favorite and I want to give credit where credit is due.

It's the one using a borrowed $5 and a $1. Fold the $5 and place it in a coin purse. Fold the $1 and it becomes the $5.

Spectator now opens the purse and opens the bill inside, which is MISMADE!

I then take the Mismade bill and turn it "right."

I seem to recall seeing it in an old Linking Ring Magazine, years ago and I am pretty sure that it's based on a mental effect by Larry Becker that originally used a 35mm film can... From, I believe, The World of Super Mentalism...

My favorite is $5 TO $1. From an Ammar's Easy to Master Money Miracles. I don't remember who it is credited to.

I am partial to Ghost Bills myself. Sometimes I leave my gimmick bills at home, or forget my TT but ghost bills I can do anytime.
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

Anyone have AE2 from Hocus Pocus? The demo looks awesome. If anyone does, is it worth buying?

Bert Allerton's "Bamboozled" is a favorite of mine.
The Brema Bill Tube is another.
I love a good "Bill to Lemon" but I haven't found an impromptu version that works well for me.

I have AE2. I find the gimmick can be a little delicate and it's not a great impromptu effect imho, but I do like it. I found that being able to borrow a bill and switch the gimmick in and out is where it hits the hardest and takes the most practice. Unless I have the element of surprise on my side, I typically do it after I already did an effect with a borrowed bill that didn't require any switch (like Stealth Pen), that way the spec isn't burning your hands as much when you switch it in.

My favorite paper money effect involves cards and bills. It's called "You Do as I Do With My Dough". It involves betting of dollar bills where you always win. At the end, a surprise occurs right under their noses. It's in Chapter 25 of my new book Kingdom of the Red to be released on or before Aug 31. There's a photo from that chapter at my website. Go to the link by my signature below.

Just an FYI. This effect was out before Lonnie released it. In fact it was published in David Acer's book Natural Selection 2 (I think that was the book.)

It was also on Jim Pace's "Gags 1" VHS. AND Jim got it from a magician named Justin Hanes. Just so you have some idea on the history of this wonderful impromptu effect.
