Would you guys recommend a #1 or #3 size coin envelope for the late Bob Cassidy's 4DT?

#3! the #1 is too small to even fit a US standard size business card

I disagree. Why would you be using business cards when the routine works best with billets. Number 1 are the ones I've always used.

For ease of handling. I've always felt #1 didn't show as well as #3s on stage

Thanks, well I found a access to #1 envelopes this morning. Gonna make it up and see how it flows. I think I'm not to worried about them being small for people viewing them on stage as it's supposed to be forgotten you are using envelopes anyway which was why he was against even colored envelopes. I'll see how it flows with the blocking today.

Can't say I've ever had that problem. # 1 envelopes work perfectly with the routine. If you're concerned that the audience can't see them, that is what you have the 'judge' for. He/She confirms all that for you. Business cards would take away from the simplicity of the effect, and in many ways it could make the handing and subtleties more awkward than it should be.

Comforting to know #1s are reliable, thank you.

It is not about the cards, it is about the reveals.

The mention of business cards was for the sake of dimensional comparison, not use in 4dt Smile

I use #3 envelopes but with pre-printed cards not billets
