I was just wondering why there is that bronze paint along the rim of the Scotch and Soda coin? Evryone always sees it and knows that it's fake.

If you go look at a quarter, you'll notice it has the same "paint", the coin is minted this way.

I have to agree with him though. I have the dime and penny, and while silver coins do have a bronze edge, it is OVERLY bronze on these coins. I have to just try and do the trick quickly and covered so no one really notices.

Dime and Penny will tarnish and develop a more "painted' edge. Maybe it's just me but my Scotch and Soda is undetectable.

I don't have the Scotch and Soda so I don't know. And the dime and penny is super inexpensive and still a good trick so I don't care. No one has caught me on it. The color just worries me though. But if I can't control a slightly brozey dime, how will I ever be good at sleights or a TT? It's a small problem, nothing big. A good magician can make anything work. What is the old adage? "A good carpenter never blames his tools." <br>

Try a salt/vinegar solution to clean off the bronzey penny.

I was always more concerned with being caught because of the weight of the coin and the hollow sound. But so far, no one has caught on, no matter how closely they've inspected the coins. This was the second trick I ever bought (after the Hot Rod)about 25 yrs. ago and still my favorite for close up magic.
