Sorry man, that sucks. Silver isn't ferrus (sp?) so a magnet probably won't work. I just bought four barbers myself three days ago and I would be pretty mad if I lost one.

No. I bought them at coin shop in my town. I had four liberty bell silver dollars that I never used for anything so I took them down to the shop and the dude gave me 16 bucks each. And the barbers were 8 bucks each.

The bigger the coin, the easier it is to see. Only works if your hands are big enough to conceal the coin properly, though.

The barber half was the best coin I ever used. I bought an ike but its just too big. you cant really classic palm it too good . you will have the starfish and all that. I prefer kennedies and barbers.

The size of the coin that you want depends on what you're doing with them. For me I use half dollars in general because they work well for me and they relate well to my hands and hand size. So basically it's just a matter of whatever coins fit your hands. There are certain sleights that become easier with a bigger coin and some that are easier with a smaller coin. But whatever fits your hands is what you should use.

Just take the car apart, you wont have to glue anything. Your center console should be held together by screws, not glue.
