A nice version of the classic flying coins in brass. One at a time a coin will 'fly' from one cup to another...
A brass coin box resembling a large brass nut is removed from a velvet bag. In the center of the nut is a hole which the spectator can examine and see through. Three half-dollars are placed in the coin box. The half dollars are ungimmicked and may be marked if desired. The coin box with halves is openly placed on the table. An ungimmicked cup, which may be borrowed, is tipped forward and the coin box and halves are removed and placed on the velvet bag.
The magi states he can cause the half-dollars to travel from point A (THE BAG) to point B (UNDER THE CUP). The spectator can still see the halves in the coin box which is on the velvet bag. The magi rubs the top of the box as he says: Abra cadabra! ~VOILA! The half dollars have INSTANTLY VANISHED! With empty hands, the magician lifts the cup to uncover the very same half-dollars. The Spectator is free to lift up the cup himself!
Complete with solid brass coin box and velvet bag. Instant reset, no palming or shells, and mostly self-working. This effect is visual magic at its best!
