Dom, I don't think anyone on this board is just going to blurt out Jim Steinmeyer's method, as used by David Copperfield, for vanishing the Statue of Liberty.
Suffice to say that it is not something that you could ever repeat, and it does not use any principle you would recognize.
I think you missed a bit of 'across the pond' sarcasm.
The kid asked for how Brown does a 'which hand is it in' guessing game.
Dom is sarcastically linking vanishing a pound coin under a glass to vanishing the statue of liberty. The gag was really emphasized with the black art wells suggestion.
Sometimes I think us brits need to hold up a sign of some kind when we are sarcastic. If you read Dom's other posts you will see he is more than qualified and certainly wasn't asking for the secret to the Copperfield illusion!
