For those that have this set (I am considering), can you tell me how easily the coin un-n*sts? Really, do they all un-n*st easily and smoothly?

Very well, but be aware inner most coin is quite thin in my opinion.

No sh*** will completely cover a coin unless its been thinned down to fit. However, the drawback is the coins will clearly look awkward un-ne**** when looking at their rims.
I have a second run 3CF from 2010 and the innermost coin is a fl***er with a full size looking rim (no cut down, perhaps because it’s a gaff fl***er than just a regular coin as in the 3CM). The un-ne****** is very smooth with just lifting.

You can probably go online and find a video of Dean Dill performing it.I know when the video came out I got a bunch of phone calls because people knew I was friends with Dean and they wanted to know how he was doing the trick . Mr Dill played a big part in schoolcraft development.

It's basically a 3 coin nest.
The magnetism is just to keep things from flying apart when (gently) tossed from hand to hand.
As for coverage - are you talking dollar or half dollar size?
Dollar size will always look better as the thickness of the rim and face have minimums they can't go below, and those will be a smaller percentage of dollar sized coins than halves.

Sorry, but that's not accurate.
Mark Mason's "deep dish" ones give near 100% coverage, as do Jeff Copeland's recent ones made for his Tiger Tan coins. I've also got an old Kennedy one that had a new rim added on vs "expanding" the coin,so these things have been around.

The tradeoff there is the nested coin is thicker than the others when viewed on edge, vs having a thinner insert. Choose whichever works best for you.

I second that statement of (in)accuracy.
All of the options are possible, it's just about tradeoffs.
Side coverage? You can thin the coin, or you can widen the [, but then the two won't be the same thickness when next to each other. You can make them the same thickness, but then you have to compromise on coverage.

Same thing for "stretching" the face - you can expand the whole thing, or just do the rim, to reduce distortion. You could also reduce the insert.

Will spectators be looking at them together more often when they're separated or combined? That might inform which kind of discrepancy is more important to mask.

Here’s a performance, with the Triple Threat not the 3CM but hope this gives food for thought…

With this routine, edge views don’t really come into play but I guess it’s how you intend to use your gimmick.
