in the bobo book you read about palming coins alot. Are there still any around? And if yes, where could i get them. Are there any modern coins to substitute them?
(I'm talking about the coins used in the 4th miser's dream routine in the bobo book by jack makepeace)

I don't have the book nor have I had any experiance with plaming coins, but I believe you're talking about coins that are made to be easily palmed?

If thats the case take a file or something and just make the edges rough, but practice will allow you to plam normal coins just as easily.

As far as I know, they are just very thin coins. The reasoning for them is that you can palm a lot of them. Basically, for every one regular half dollar you can palm like 3 or for palming half dollars.

Yeah they are thin coins so you can palm more easier. The problem is most that I have seen are fake, made up coins with different designs on them. From a distance they are find. Up close they won't look like any US currency.

Are Morgan's good for palming? They are sold here for anywhere from $12 to $19 and I'm wondering if thats a good price as well.

Guys, palming coins have two qualites about them. They're thin, and they're smooth. Ever notice how when you try and manipulate a stack of half dollars or quarters, they clink and scratch and grind? A palming coin will prevent that, because they're like a washer. They don't have anything on the surface that would scratch against another coin. That's why they're preferred in Bobo's for The Miser's Dream.
