Re: Dental Dam

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAGdrpcJp70
Actor who plays the magic shop owner in the show demonstrates Lubor Fiedler' s "Dental Dam and coin " at 9: 56 . This is 1964 . Is this when the trick came out ?? Also I think the little boy in the episode grew up to be Rob Zabrecky. Ha Ha. :D

Re: Copentro

"With the aid of this little apparatus , performer shoots into a glass a marked coin. while glass is covered with either a cone or hat." That's what is written in the first paragraph. No stand.

Re: Copentro

The person who came up with Coin Shooter is H. J. Burlingame. Have not seen the Downs book. However, Burlingame does indicate using a cone. Not a Dealer item.

Re: Copentro

Yesterday I found in January 1927 issue of the Sphinx a trick called "coin shooter".Just like Copentro but it used a book instead of a wood base. I was trying to upload the picture. But having trouble.
