Inferential/Infernal... but not a sleazy coin trick

Postby Jonathan Townsend » February 28th, 2016, 10:29 pm

This month's issue has something that evolved from an idea explored by Curtis Kam - that puts some impressive coin effects in easy reach of most performers. Thanks Kainoa, Miguel and Curtis.

Get out that underused coin gaff and go to town with presentations that make the most of the deceptive principle as described.

This is the kind of trick where you can put your focus on entertaining. Kainoa mentions Miguel has a book on the way and that Curtis will have some video on this item available too.

Richard - is there a video of Kainoa doing the wildcoin?

I'm wondering if this can be done with dimes and a copper/silver dime-penny, or might they be too small for the in-hand turnovers.

The large action coin spread turnover is easily replaced by a more genteel action during the pickup. The closed hand secret turnover (described in Bobo's) works with small coins too.

the shell in a dime/penny gaff ( what the heck use a nesting set of silvers in this trick ;) ) lets you pretend to pick up the dime and have it change/switch as your routine requires.

I can almost imagine our Jerry Deutsch using this as a "try to make the four silver coins vanish... darn that one's copper let me try with these three" homing card type routine.

Folks, look at Steve Dusheck's tricks with dimes and the roll of pennies from his DVD... I'm guessing P.T.'s looking at this already :)
