They work great, but I don't really have a reason to carry the Flipper around with me. I have material that uses it, I just don't use much of it. I do know that I'll never go back to a standard Flipper.

$80? I gave Dean Dill a $100 bill for my Flipper and haven't been upset about it at all. He has them at $80 now?

Also what uses can you do with a flipper that you cant with a shell?


I don't use the Flipper Much, but you can easily put a Gravity Flipper in someone's hand without them finding the gaff. Not so with a Shell. They can also be handled like a single coin much easier.


As for the Shell quality, if Lassen's are better, they'd have to be unbelievable. Schoolcraft's Shells are amazing.


They are unbelievable. I've seen and handled both, and Lassen IS better. Lassen would NEVER send you a low quality product, and you can't say the same with Jamie.

but schoolcraft shells are still really high quality right? and on lassens website i cant find a walking liberty/english penny copper silver coin. And i heard lassen shipping takes forever?


Schoolcraft is high quality, but Lassen is even higher. Todd will make you the coin, that's a great thing about any custom coin maker. Todd Lassen takes a while to make the coin, because he's booked solid. So many people want him, because he is the best. It'll be worth it when you see the finished product.

My coin set took just under 2 weeks to arrive but they are hand made. And see how their made to order thats really nice of schoolcraft. You can't go wrong with either because they both make really nice coins. I don't know why you need to bash one or the other. We don't need fanboys for coin makers.

I recently saw a set of coins made by Jamie for a magician at JC Wagners bar, his name is Craig Stone and he sent his own coins in and had them worked by Jamie. Another magician as well as JC have also had coins made by Jamie. They were excellent in quality to say the least.
Craig was trying to have some other items made up and tried to get hold of Lassen but after several "no responses" he decided to go back to Jamie. JC said the same thing, although Lassen's work is definitely top notch they would go to Jamie for better customer support and better prices.

Hey guys I just want you to know I am currently buying from lassen right now. He is much harder to get ahold of than schoolcraft. That being said I want to disprove some of the statements made on this blog. Schoolcraft is much cheaper. I priced a c/s and a walking lib expanded set from both. Schoolcraft wanted 70 for his c/s walking lib and wanted 240 for his expanded lib set. Lassen only wanted 65 for his c/s lib and 200 for his expanded lib set. This is a total difference of 45 dollars. I even went to Schoolcraft to see if he could match his price but he couldnt.
