“Upsadaisy!” is a good quickie with some change. It can be found on page 40 of Bruce Elliott’s Professional Magic Made Easy. There’s a knack to it, but it comes quickly.

I already have the book! Awesome, thanks! Oops. No I don't. I have a different Bruce Elliott book. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one.

I have a quick easy routine that can easily be spontaneous. I do it with three different coins. Of course you could use just one coin,even a quarter works. I like to use a half dollar, a Chinese coin and silver dollar. I don't know what you call it but have you ever seen Mickey Silver on you tube do that endless coin from the pocket to the hand. I start with a basic half dollar to the hand, reach back in pull out the Chinese coin do a little something, put it in the hand and at the last second take it out of the hand to prove it's there, then it's gone, reach back in my pocket pull out the silver dollar do a couple of cool things with it put it in the hand and then complete vanish. Both hands clean( by way of Joshua Jay's way of a complete vanish if you know what that is) I think it looks pretty good and not to hard.

Progressive Production

 

I posted this on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on October 1, 2004 with a full explanation.

 

This effect by Bob Carver appears on page 377 of Bobo "The New Modern Coin Magic" (it's not in the first edition or the paperback Dover version) and with some modifications I've made in the presentation (I have two different presentations) , it's become one of my favorite impromptu effects.

 

In both presentations it's just something that happens - I'm not doing a trick.

 

In the method, the only thing I've added is the production of the first and second coins. Instead of palming five coins I palm only four, two in each hand and use the spectator's coin for the first. I'll explain my production of the second coin below - the third, fourth and fifth follow Bob Carver's routine.

 

I have two presentations as follows:

 

1          I ask a spectator for a quarter and when I get it, it becomes two, then three, then four and then five. Then, as if this is a natural way to get money and not a magic effect, I use the line that comes from one Vernon attributes to Malini (See Dai Vernon Book of Magic page 106) as I give the lender back her quarter, "Thanks, I needed quarters." as I put the other four in my pocket.

 

2          I note a quarter in a spectator's purse or on the table and say, "Oh there's one!" (As if the quarter is a special one. I use this line for several effects. I'll  publish one with a rock in a few months). I then make her quarter two, then three, then four and then five and I let her keep them all. (For the frugal it can be done with nickels.)

Hi David. Yes, I am very familiar with Mickey Silver's ROV vanish stuff, specifically the routine you mention. Quick question to make sue I understand. So you apparently are collecting all these coins in your hand? If so, I am not seeing how you could do the ROV for subsequent coins. You need an empty hand for the illusion to be effective. So I'm probably missing something?

Don't overlook this one. I watched Eric do it over and over at a local Penguin Live event, and he has such a light touch and such subtle and perfectly timed misdirection that everything he does is utterly magical. The routine looks harder than it actually is.

In that Kaufman coin book there is a great coins and purse routine by David Arthur.

Thanks! I'll go back to Metal and take a look.
