I took a coin and visited a local thrift store. Used the coin to test glasses to get the proper size and action when pouring the coin out.

Those looking for a coin set should check out Roy Kuppers's site. If you scroll down, he has a "common" sets as well as Morgans, Walking Liberty an the like.

American Half, Canadian Twonie, or Ike dollars.

I'm using the glass that came with Kainoa Harbottle's Victorian Coins and Glass. As a side note regarding coins from Roy Kueppers, on the "other" forum there's been talk for years about inconsistent quality and customer service. Your mileage may vary.

Yeah - that glass would be perfect.

And that trick itself is a great one as well.

Thanks so much for this tip. I was looking for another reason to push me towards getting that trick.
