Does anyone know where I could purchase one? Roy Kueppers used to sell them, but his website no longer seems to be functional. (What happened?) Thanks in advance.

Do you want just a C/S coin or an actual sum/moon coin (which includes a s***l, too)?

Buying any "Dime & Penny" trick will get you the former - except it will be locking, and that might not be what you want.
I'm unaware of any common sets that contain a non-locking version.

If you want just the C/S coin, it depends on what kind of quality you want and how much you're willing to spend. You could just use the C/S from the dime & penny. Or buy Coin on Call http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/5991 which has what you want.

I recall someone mentioning Roy's site as down a few weeks ago, and it came back a day or two later, so you could also wait it out and order from him then. I suspect some sort of config or content change brought it down, but it could just be an unreliable server.

Thanks for the opportunity to clarify. I am interested in just a C/S penny/dime coin. (I'm not looking for a shell or for any locking item.)

Thanks for the "Coin on Call" reference. Yes, that's the item. Do you know if it's well-made? (Or who makes it?)

I noted in your latest reply that you did not want a shell. To the other point, you could buy a locking D/P and stretch it with a silk or two until it dropped free. Just a thought.

Check out the thread on it here:
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=218

I'm not sure who the manufacturer of that one is, but here's the comment on Roy's site about it:

Quote:
This is the Gaff that Jeff Prace uses and recommends. I developed a unique way to make both the Dime & the Penny the same diameter and yet keep the rim on the penny so that both coins look natural. Unlike the locking Dime & Penny set that has a C/S insert where the penny has no rim remaining. This makes this particular coin the ultimate C/S coin from two coins that are normally two different sizes.

NOTE: GIMMICK RECEIVED WITH PURCHASE OF DOWNLOAD ON PENGUIN MAGIC'S WEBSITE IS NOT THE ROY KUEPPERS GAFF AND THEREFORE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIM ON THE PENNY SIDE AS DOES MINE.


I can't speak firsthand to the quality of the gimmick that comes with the coin-on-call, but from the thread it sounds like it's not quite as good as Roy's. You could try emailing him if his site isn't back up soon.

And his site is back up. http://roykueppers.com/coppersilver.html

Slightly related: I didn't notice it before, but this topic really should have been under "Trick Coin Trickery", and not "Nothing Up my Sleeve". We are talking about gafffed coins, after all. Perhaps a mod will feel like moving it.

I just bought a dime and penny and it is nothing like the one I had 10 years ago. This new one is unnaturally shiny and looks fake came with a ring unlike my old one but I would rather have the old style that looked like it was made from a real penny and dime. Is this the new crap standard for these or are the old ones still made?

If it was made from a real penny, it will naturally darken over time from handling.

“Coin on Call” C/S penny-Dime Coins is available at Roy Kueppers for $15. http://www.roykueppers.com/coppersilver.html
His site says...

“This is the Gaff that Jeff Prace uses and recommends. I developed a unique way to make both the Dime & the Penny the same diameter and yet keep the rim on the penny so that both coins look natural. Unlike the locking Dime & Penny set that has a C/S insert where the penny has no rim remaining. This makes this particular coin the ultimate C/S coin from two coins that are normally two different sizes.”

I have one and I agree; the penny does not look like a milled down penny. If you have an expanded penny shell, you could certainly have a true Sun/Moon set! (It might even fit in an expanded penny shell. I’ll try to find one and try it and advise.

Blessings!

Mine is unnaturally shiny, not like a new penny and I can't even dull the finish to make it look more natural. I also just noticed that a small rim of copper looking material is visible around the dime part. This is definitely made form a real dime and penny. The package has Trickmaster on it.

Following up on my last post; to see if the Kueppers C/S Penny/Dime will nest into non-expanded penny shell: It does NOT nest.

Thanks
Steph
