Have any of you handled these coins?
I have one from Todd's C/S/B, and just bought ten more uncirculated ones of Ebay for $21. Who doesn't love Esnipe?

They are a tiny bit bigger than a Half Dollar; similar in size to an English Penny. I think these copper coins are nice because they have a hole, making them seem more impossible to a spectator. They also work nicely, or so I've heard, for Troy Hooser's Charming Chinese Challenge.

They look like they'd be too thick for CCC.

I personally like to use Sterling Chinese Coins, but I've heard many people use these.
