For those of you who use a raven or similar gimick heres a nifty little trick I came up with....or maybe not....but I call it the Hong Kong dime:

What you need:

A Raven

A Real Quarter

A Hong Kong Dime (a chinese dime)

------------------------------------------

Effect:

You describe the unique speed you have aquired being able to remove the special Hong Kong dime from a spectators palm. In fact not only can you remove it, you have a spec place a quarter on top of the dime in her own palm in an attempt to make it more difficult (and impossible) for you.

You then do the classic raven move, and you have removed the dime from undrneath the quarter.

This is just plain fun, the dime moves with a huge vellocity, and makes a little sound as it's coming out. If you practice this, you can also make the quarter turn from heads, to tails for example in the process. Of course you also end clean.

Get two HK dimes, and you have a good reproduction and can repeat.

This requires some practice, but if you get the knack for it , it's really cool. The only hangups are sometimes you will snag the quarter too!

You could probably get one from anyplace that does foreign currency exchange. I just happened to find one in circulation, and it happened to stick strongly to the raven, and have a few friends that have some laying around too.

Test that foriegn currency, you might find some other countries coinage to work with the raven to, and do the same effect. And you could also do this with a steel core dime as well (the hong Kong dime is just WAY stronger in it's attractive properties) for the same effect.

Cool!

Yea, have fun with it....see if you can get the quarter, or whatever your real coin is to do a heads/tales flip as well as snag the coin underneath.

To my knowledge nobodies doing it, so have fun with it!

:lol:
