I got a question on the three in one quarter and since it came up here it is. I got mine off ebay from a guy named roy kaupers (forgive my spelling) It sounds exatly the same as the three in one but it doesnt come with a flipper coin routine. It came with bite out, coin in bottle, and torn and restored coin. It has cuts on both sides. Could someone please pm me and tell me if it is the same as the three in one. I wish i got it from penguin but i got it before i knew about this awesome site.

The thing I don't understand is why everyone seems to give something a lower rating because you have to practice to get something down??? If every other trick takes practice...that's a good thing, unless the effects aren't good (which by the sound of this review, they sound like good ones).

so sad, so true. reviews lately always seem to be swayed by the practice needed to do the trick. come on.

How difficult is the 3-fly routine? I only have the bite out and have read great reviews on this effect.

Thanks for help

None of the routines are very hard at all. They are all pretty easy with a few hours of perfectoin.

I may have to move Buttercoin up on my list. I have been wanting since I first saw the demo.

I bought the coin and I was slightly dissapointed. In the demo u see it changing into a huge coin. In actual fact you can't do it withthe buttere coin and you need to bring that yourself. In fact, there isn't even a proper explanation on how to do it.

So your saying your recieved a normal coin? Butter Coin is gimmicked so the gimmick itself is in the shape of a coin. If you didn't get a butter coin call penguin customer service. About the replacement gimmicks, I don't think they come with the trick, so you would have to buy them as another product.

No, I am saying I recieved Buttercoin with no gimmick for the gimmicked coin, I can't post it on here due to giving away the trick I feel this is to close as it is.
However I did e-mail customer service and they are sending me a new Buttercoin due to the fact that I live in Germany and magic stores are nearly non-existent in my region. There are a few near Munich and Berlin but that is on the other side of the country and not worth the drive for the item in question.
I did see a spot for the replacement gimmicks, on penguin also but due to the great customer service I don't have to order them now.
Penguin Magic has been the most professional business I have ever dealt with in 34 years. :D

i don't see how one coin can be a folding coin, and a flipper coin. Does the folding coin in this actually work the same way as other folding coins? does the flipper part of the coin fold?

I think the 3-in-1 would be less suspicious because the buttercoin is a half dollar and they seem to be sort of rare. Especially me because i live in Canada and it's easy to get an american quarter and I've never seen a half dollar.
