Doug Henning, was probably most well known for his vanishing nickel illusion. Doug would put a nickel in his open palm. Then he'd close hand, rotate his wrist and then back to original position where he'd then open his hand. The nickel was GONE, vanished. I'd LOVE to learn exactly how he did it. [exposure speculation removed]
Thank you already for digesting this so far, but thank you particularly if you can enlighten me on this.

This is John Cornelius' "Fickle Nickel" and is available under that name. It was also performed by Siegfried and Roy on a TV special many years ago. John teaches it on one of Michael Ammar's "Classic Renditions" videos.

It's also available directly from John.

Classic renditions 2 which has a lot of great rubber band magic as well. Great effect!
