Bob Chesbro's Coin In Lighter

Postby James Foster » January 23rd, 2002, 1:01 pm

I'm in the market for the prop known as Bob Chesbro's Coin In Lighter. My preference is for the older version, the one with the Vu-Lighter design. I understand that there is a newer version, perhaps still being made, which uses a Bic-style lighter. Additional information on this model would be appreciated, if available.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I vividly recall seeing Bob Chesbro do his coin in lighter at Fechter's at least 10 to 15 years ago. He fried us the first time since the damn coin was marked! I figured it out after a few minutes--the method was too perfect, and it led me to the ONLY possible solution.
