Be bold my friend. Lol. Or, barring that, get to the final phase, take the "last coin" as directed, then do a retention vanish instead of the insta-stooge ending. Not as impacting as the original but you still have the final coin appearing in the spectators hand, giving you a memorable finale and plenty of time to clean up and/or prep your next effect.

Thanks for the idea. I think I'll look back at this today and see what I can do with it.

Cheers!

If Victorian is performed for just a couple people the stooge part is tough.  Like Hex said, a retention under the spec's hand would work.  I think Kainoa is working on a strolling routine.

Socked coins (without the sock---I have a modified coin bag thing I made. On second thought, it also is a different handling than the original. Effect is the same).

Silver Quick by Derek Dingle is in my opinion one of the best coins across routines of all time. It uses four coins and an expanded shell and slays every time I do it. It isn't too difficult, as it is routined very nicely. The spectator literally feels nothing in your hand and a coin materializes from your hand into theirs. It's wild. The last coin appears in their hand. Can't get much better and it doesn't use a table, only their hand.

There is a nice routine using a shell half dollar in Paul Gertner's Steel & Silver book. I don't remember the name of the trick as I really don't do coins, and I don't own the book anymore, but it is a fooler.

Best,

Logan, I appreciate the comment, but it's a bit vague. I need to buy this book and it is on my every expanding list, but any idea of some basis so we can research?

Ben - I am not familiar with Paul Gertner's routine. But it sounds like it's in the same family as David Roth's Shell Coins Across, which is perfect for a table-hopping routine. The coins end up in the spectator's hand end. The plot of the routine is pretty common and I imagine is similar to Gertner's. I'll have a look at Paul's Penguin lecture and see if it's on there.

Ben,

I did a couple of searches and couldn't find the name of the effect anywhere. I did find out that his book is out of print. The routine is basically a coins across routine with half dollars and with the last coin being in the participant's hand.

Sorry I couldn't be more of help. but I sold this book in the mid 90's.

Best,

Yeah. that description now sounds even more like the Roth Shell Coins Across. BTW, the latter can be found in Kaufman's "David Roth's Expert Coin Magic" book as well as on the NYCM Seminar DVDs.

For a ungaffed miracle, find Paul Harris PDQ Coins. $ half dollars - no gaffs and can be done in the spectator's cupped hands if no table is available.

Google and you can find it reprinted elsewhere.
