I'm glad you all like it! Thanks!

I don't do a lot of coin effects although I know a little about them... 

For this video I used Zoom to record, the left-hand camera is my cell phone and the right one is my new webcam. The cell phone is connected to Zoom via my web connection (that's why it is not synchronized with the other view) and the webcam is connected directly to the computer. I wanted the two views side by side so you can get to see the trick from different angles...

The German Coin Box was one of the first coin effects I did way back when.  Mine came in a magic set and was made of plastic.  It was sized for quarters and that fit my young hands much better.  It also didn't have a hole completely through, but was deceptive nonetheless.

The one I used is not exactly a German box, nor a Boston nor an Okito. It's a kind of combination. I can't take a picture now, but I will later in the day so you can see it up close.

It kind of reminds me a little of the Hoo Coin Box Paul Diamond used to sell.
I always liked the added feature of the hole.

Lends itself to some very clean appearances similar to the hole in Chinatown Half.

Edit:  We often talk about that 1 degree, and the hole gives this effect that extra 1 degree and adds to the illusion.

Very cool! Always nice to have something special like that. I had a machinist make some boxes for me years ago. Sadly he has passed. I will always appreciate his skills though.

Well actually he is the one who sells them but I don't think he makes them, he only had them made for him, with his specifications.

Oh, sorry, thought he was the maker. In any event, nicely made box.
