Looks interesting although they don’t really show a close up of what the final bill looks like. I like that it says no printer required and apparently comes with multiple reveals. Just wish someone would figure out a way to make Daniel Garcia’s Fraud easy to prepare as I still think that is the strongest altered bill effect ever made.

I'm also intrigued in this, wish the trailer actually showed the effect.

Spoiler alert. Dollar bill’s only.

One part of the demo shows the signature changing as he is rubbing his finger slowly across it. Makes me think the gimmick is something separate that you use to prep a transparent sticky piece that gets rubbed on, who knows....looks pretty cool, may take the plunge. Wonder if the reveal can be something customizable?

I suspect that if the effect was better, they would show it more closely. I was pretty much craning my neck trying to figure out what was going on.

RNK,

I think you are 100% correct. I would probably lose the gimmick after a week.

Says the bill can be given away so I don’t think that’s it. I assume it’s just a bill switch for an already prepared bill

Fraud is awesome, but I gave up after a few performances, too much work to many times the print didn’t come out perfect.

So I just watch the demo, and now I’m thinking it’s just a rubberstamp and a force and I’m wondering why you couldn’t do that with fraud as well

If this is a rubber stamp(or multiple stamps), I like that idea. Personally, I've never had a problem with prepping the bills like needed with Fraud or Serialsly.

Terrible video it really shows nothing & the reveal on the bill is tiny you can hardly read it ! So imagine the spectator struggling to read it "Not Good Magic"
Just my opinion here .

Revealing a playing card on a borrowed bill is a VERY strong effect. Set up for that effect is such a pain that it makes me not want to do it. Treasury makes the set up ridiculously easy. I can set up 100 bills while watching my favorite tv show. This has a lot of value for workers that want an awesome give away for your spectators to keep.

Strong effect, really useful prop.

I love effects that leave your spectators with a unique souvenir that they will talk about for years. I am on the fence but want to wait to hear more feedback. Hoping this is more than just a stamper with a card value written in script.

Tricky, is there a place that this is available already ?
If this Could make fraud and counterfeit spectator easier to prepare than I'm all in.

I pre-ordered from Penguin last week, I was surprised they shipped my order as the product page still listed as pre-order until Dec 7. The device is specifically for Treasury. I have yet to watch the video, so I can't say if the method of prepping the bill detailed would make Fraud/Counterfeit Spectator/Serialsly easier to prepare.

I love this. A lot of potential. I was working on a no-deck version that I really like, sent it to Michael Murray (who else?) and am waiting to hear his thoughts on it. If we tighten it up, it's a great tool for a great reveal, and no deck needed when you want to go that route.

I just bought this and was surprised the video wasn’t in my downloads.

I thought this was a penguin exclusive.

Any idea why the instructions aren’t available in my account?

Thanks

Hopefully sounds like they just need to apply the update to their database for it to show in our "My Downloads". I got mine in the mail last week (during pre-orders), and had to access the video from the link and password printed in the box.
