Man I wish I had a good way to ditch serval coins or just one. Do any of you know any methods. I know a couple that I don't practice.

I dropped a coin the other day and could not find it. After a few minutes I reached down to pull my sock up and found it (half dollar) in the cuff of my pants...duh. Been done before (on purpose). Of course you have to get in position for it, too.

The old standby dropping it on the floor, feigning picking it up, but actually sliding it under your foot or a chair.

Again, not the best solutions, but....

A clip (e.g., a Slydini clip) will help with several coins. Try using a Topit.

Single coin only:

From a video, I regularly use a ditch I got from Kirk Kokinos Bare Handed.

From a book, there are several in Bobo's Modern Coin Magic.

I typically just put it in my pocket during a part of the routine where their attention is focused elsewhere.

See, now I use the Fitch/Kohler holdout to ditch coins (three of them, to be exact), during my Cylinder & Coins routine. The beauty of this method is that I can ring them back in whenever I want without my audience being the wiser.

Of course, I'm just using a standard holdout attachment for this; when the production version of the Fitch Coin End is ready, I'll be able to ditch and retrieve up to EIGHT coins at a time!

Regards,
Thomas Wayne

It's even fun to vanish the coin you no longer have. Power of suggestion makes for a great walkaround finish. You're clean before you even start. I do this very often.

John Cornelis has a way to ditch several coins on his video Creative Magic. Not that Im fond of the idea, but it could work in combination with the topit I suppose.
Some thumbtips could also work as a container for the coins and later be topited (?) Smile

Just some thoughts...

sleeving is always fun....so is topiting...lapping is an option sometimes. I will usually reach into my pocket for something and just drop the coin(s) off....it's no big deal....but I just really love sleeving......

Leave it under something on the table. Later on, (once you've moved away) take credit for it being there.

While they're looking over there, it's easy to pocket the coin you're holding out now.

To sleeve or not to sleeve that is the
question.(LOL)

Actually I use sleeving both up the right or use something like the pumpkin seed up the
left one.

When wearing short sleeve shirts, I sometimes
use shirting.

This is usually in an impromptu,"non
performance mode" when I am wearing a shirt
that buttons down.

P.S.

I just saw Troy Hooser lecture yesterday, and he had a BEAUTIFUL vanish of a coin. I won't explain it because I think that it's in his book, but if you have the book, check it out!
