If you are not afraid of some extra set-up, and a lot of practice, and you wear a jacket when performing, you will blow some minds with this vintage effect that Paul Diamond put out in about 1979 or 1980.
I cannot show you the prop itself, as it is a secret gimmick that is never seen by the audience. But if you are familiar with props like the Vernet Invisible Hand or other Hold out devices, you will understand that this is similar but also with some extra capabilities.
The main effect of closing your fist around a half dollar , then opening it to cleanly show the coin has vanished. Then the coin re-appears apparently floating at the tips of your fingers.
As mentioned in the opening sentence, there are a few requirements to using this, and not least of which is practice, practice, practice. And then use your imagination and play around with it to see what other moves and effects you can come up with. (In that way, this effect is a bit like the classic Zombie also -- simple in many ways, but like Zombie, it requires thoughtful handling and approach.)
The Paul Diamond Catalog listing is shown in one of the photos (PD catalog is not included -- just there so you can see how PD described it back in 1981 when it graced the back cover of his catalog).
previously owned, but excellent condition, with original props and instructions -- instruction sheets are 3-hole punched. They are the original sheets issued by Paul Diamond, (though they are photocopies of the typewritten instructions, as was the common practice back then).
