Re: soft morgan silver dollars

I believe (but don't quote me) that the term "junk silver" only applies to coins which are smaller, but worn. This would be half dollar or less...I could be wrong as I am not a coin expert, if you are asking for "junk silver dollars" that may be why they are saying they do not ha...

Re: want to learn full deck false shuffle-

J. Burk Whittaker has a great Zarrow shuffle variant in his lecture. It is a full blind shuffle, you do not use a table as it is all done in the hands, and you can burn the hands and still not catch it...marvelous!

I have a set of four, they are nice but mine did start to loose thier paint after about three weeks. I perform 5 nights a week at my gigs and they have taken a beating.

Re: Card To Wallet

I am not sure what this item is called but I believe it was from Presley Guitar, I have had it for years and got it used from a friend. It is a small key wallet, the card ends up folded inside. the routine is very strong and the card being folded adds to the mystery greatly!
