Anyone heard of these, and if so, know how rare (or not) they are?
Set of two boxes with some very unique features.

Yes, they're mine, but I'm not sure if I want to part with them, and if so, at what price.

I'm a bit of a Dusheck collector - so he probably despises me Smile - and got these as part of a bundle of effects.

They're clearly not your usual Okito type coin boxes. By design the large base makes it impossible to put the lid on the bottom. Smile

And it looks knurled too. I wonder what the significance of that is? Holding in French drop position? Very interesting looking box. It would be awesome to hear what Steve has done with it.

It is called Coin Stack, one of a number of tricks invented by Steve and made by Eddie Gibson. I was able to find a YouTube video of someone performing the trick with 10 pence coins. If yours is the same then the box lid does not appear to belong and you would need a brass ring. The set-up is similar to the 3 in 1 coin box set, or Dynamic coins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekuyesR8Dso

Thanks for sharing that.

While "Coin Stack" (which I was previously unaware of) appears to share many elements with my set, the instructions refer to them as "Dusheck's Coin Boxes", and specifically mention the lid and its spiral design on top, so I'm sure it "belongs". Both are interesting variations on the theme....

They are being ripped off and marketed as Dynamic coin now. Poor Steve has invented and had stolen from him a lifetime of magic.

No kidding. It's why he stopped selling publicly so long ago. I was just getting into magic at the time and managed to get a hold of a couple classics (Wash Out and Touche').

Just for clarity, it appears that it's "Coin Stack" that's being sold as "Dynamic Coin".

Steve Dusheck's father made his coins when he was putting them on the market. Never heard of any coin box. I worked for a magic store and ordered many of Dusheck's products at the time, and no mention of a coin box.

Steve never cared that all these people would steal his ideas and never give him a cent for his genius. Just not right.

I believe he cared very much about it.

BTW, I just scored & received an unused "Touche" on eBay. Really clever thinking (as usual) from Steve!

He did care very deeply and passionately but didn't have the desire to fight those so unethical. It's one of magics greatest losses.

Yeah, that's a great one... leads them down the garden path, then *BAM*! Smile

Some of these should really sell for more, but they're so little known, no one knows exactly what the effects are much less how strong they play.

I've seen Dynamic coins done before. The cap used to be a real tool used by bankers and related professions to keep stacks of coins in a countable condition. What excuse people have for the B**g ring needed to recover the Sh**l is the real mystery. At no point in any performance on you-tube (that I've found) does anyone make a point of showing that the coins were ever separate. It really becomes the adventure of the props. Nice props though they are the adventure does not get far.

Praise be to Mr. D.
