Ah, Scott, you have me intrigued. Thanks for the tip! Yet one more item I must own (is that my wallet I hear screaming?).

Regarding extreme methods (such as multiple Ravens) and magician’s thinking, I have to say that I have been suggested (off-line) at least one rather EASY coin sleight for this thing (which incidentally can be combined with the modified Ramsey subtlety that Michael Sibbernsen suggested).

There is also a silly method which has to do with how you position yourself relative the spectator when you reveal the coin (Docc’s method wouldn’t be anything like this would it?).

Nope. No special positioning (other than the fact that no one should be able to see behind your back when getting the coins ready, that is).

It is fun seeing the various methods that are being suggested, though. It's like a peek into each magician's/mentalist's mind.

develish deception is a great trick it was done to me at tannens, and it has a lot of possibilities besides the standard way of performing it, its awesome and ill tell you why.
Because it gets the spectators involved. The first time the magician guesses which hand the coin is in you think... ok it was luck, second time u think, ok luck again, 3rd time u think ok he'll get it wrong this time, 4th time they'll think what the heck is going on,5th time they are determined to make u fail, and 6th they give up and accept u have magic powers (not in any partivualr order), its not a trick where they just sit and watch but one where they are involved and get to challenge the magician, i know the secret to it and i must say its an ingenius idea

There's a somewhat cumbersome version of a "coin in the hand" trick in Christian Chelman's "Cappy Tales." I like the method though, and there's a lot of possibilities for streamlining the gimmicks.

I suspect a slightly renovated analog wristwatch could allow someone to make the method more compact. There's also the possibility of using other items besides a coin.

Can anyone tell me what is the thing the spec is holding in their hand (that you guess what hand it's in correctly) since Gauci says it isn't a coin.

-Thanks,
