Nicely done on the third coin. Good timing, too.

I noted some “Perverse Through The Table” ideas on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on April 2, 2006 including:

1         Coin – only half goes through

2         Sugar Cube – Sugar goes through wrapper doesn’t

3         Dollar Bill – Only picture of head goes through – not rest of bill

4         Bent coin – A quarter is borrowed and the magician says it will pass through the table. It does but comes out bent.

I usually end a “coin through table” routine by having the coin pass through the table into the spectator’s hand held below using the idea of my friend Johnny Benzais as set forth on page 128 of Harry Lorayne’s “Close Up Card Magic”.

I always look forward to reading your posts. Thanks Jerry!

Great ideas Jerry! Thanks for sharing.

I'm on a coins through table "kick" ...currently experimenting with some David Neighbors ideas. Your post has given me some food for thought.

How about four coins go through table one at a time...then all go through again together, but come out from under the table as a Jumbo coin?

In response to Waterman's questions:

1  Al Baker has a routine where the four quarters go through the table one at a time. See Bobo page 193.

2 Slydini has a twist where after coins go through the table the reverse happens. The coins "come up" and "have penetrated up". See Slydini Encores page 93.

I'll check out the routine in Bobo...I'll borrow the Slydini book from a friend who has it. Thanks for the references!

...if you look in the upper left hand corner during certain points in the routine you will see something which will help you figure out, "The Method".

Was the fact it was  video 'taped' a clue also? 

Think the large coin ending you mused about is totally illogical but might get a laugh. 

I have a version of my own which is a combination of moves, in fact I use the same moves for coins through table or coins across. don't recall recording it in any of my books but I think it appeared in my column in one of Al Smith's magazines some years ago. 

Back to the large coin, instead of the coins changing into the large coin, perhaps that could just be an additional production at the end. I think in Harris's first book his motivation for coins moving about in a Matrix type effect  was to try and escape the giant killer coin! Silly but I used it a few times.

When doing coins through table for families in a restaurant you will nearly always get some  child sticking their head under the table to look, lol.

My true motivation for using a giant coin in ANY routine is to justify purchasing the bloody thing in the first place...it's a hefty, well made jumbo coin and I have never used it (the scene in "The Forty Year Old Virgin" always come to mind when I think about using it. Hilarious!).

LOL I have a huge hefty chinese coin I've never used about 4" in diameter, always used those about 2 1/2" in diameter instead. At least they fit down the sleeve [smile]
