Marcus Eddie and his team did a fantastic job. The effect is very cool and looks just like it does on the video.

Pros:
Simple to make gimmick, but Marcus really takes his time to explain it in detail. Thank you for that, Marcus. You are a joy to watch and you're an excellent teacher.

Several variations are taught to suit every style and most situations.

The bill can be examined thoroughly after the effect is done.

Although this is not pointed out on the video, for a special situation, the bill could be signed and kept as a souvenir. But you'd probably have to make another gimmick since they are made to fit each bill specifically.

Cons: (none of these are deal breakers, but should be pointed out)

You must not be back-lit. The gimmick will show. Note that most of the video was shot at night and heavily front-lit. Marcus points this out in the video and explains that if you are performing in sunlight, just face the sun. Don't let it backlight you.

The promo indicates a "borrowed bill". It's a switch. Marcus explains several very good ways to do this, so the audience will be convinced the bill really is borrowed.

At the end of the effect, the gimmick must be palmed away. Again, Marcus demonstrates this in fantastic detail and has really thought through the clean up. I'm emphasizing this because there's a close up shot in the promo where Marcus quickly heals a bill and immediately sets it into the hand of a spectator (looks like Nicholas Lawrence's hand :) and shows his hands completely empty. The spectator would have to be in on the secret for that move to look exactly like it does in that section of the promo. It was partly why I practically broke my arm trying to get my credit card out to buy this trick. Right when I watched it the first time ;) I was a little disappointed when I saw the gimmick and realized that specific detail wasn't possible without an accomplice. Even so, I give this effect 5 stars.

I'm very excited to use this principle to create my own effects. I plan to work this into a torn and restored bill effect I've been performing since 1991 that was taught to me by Baffalo Bill at the Cucoo's Nest in Pittsburgh PA. It's extremely visual and I think Deposit can be added to the end as a "wait, one more mend..." moment.

Thank you again Penguin and Marcus (and crew), for a beautiful effect that I'll use for the rest of my life. Money well spent!

Just picked this up. As someone who does more money magic than most people, I was really excited about this. The method is really clever! The gimmick doesn't take long to make, and due to how to make it, you're able to redeem your money. There also some really nice subtleties in the method to make the bill look perfect

What's nice is they include a PDF so if you live in a country that doesn't have paper money, you can still perform the effect with an organic object.

Highly recommended!

I dont believe I have ever been disappointed with marcus eddie's projects.
I sometimes do a torn and restored from noblezadas money dvd. Rarely.
With this effect handing the bill out for examination intruiged me. So I bit.
Gimmick is easy to make and the handling tips from marcus are well thought out with several different handlings well explained.i just found the reset not as accomadating as I would have hoped. But pleased with the purchase overall

I have never seen Marcus perform before. He is an excellent teacher and I can see where audiences would love him.

This is a very well structured effect and he gives you many variations. it's definitely something to keep on hand.

It is up there with one of the better torn & restored bills.

Deposit: The Facts Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 22nd, 2017
First, let me say this is well worth the price and Marcus has created a great illusion and a top notch instructional DVD. There are some things to be aware of however if you do this trick. You have to make a gimmick, of course, and it will destroy one piece of paper currency. (Remember, if you remove or cut off any part of a bill's serial number the entire bill becomes worthless and will NOT be replaced by a bank). So, you sacrifice a one dollar bill. Second, it is best if you use newer bills and ideally two bills whose serial numbers are in sequential order. This should make it a lot easier to make the gimmick. Marcus does tell you how to work with "mis-matched bills however which is a great thing to know: making gimmicks with real currency is not as easy as people imply. You do have to watch your angles performing this and there is a relatively simple move that has to be performed if you intend to pass the restored bill out to a spectator. It only takes a couple of seconds to reset. Other than the aforementioned issues this is an excellent illusion and one that really does fool folks!!

Great Effect... however... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 26th, 2017
Marcus Eddie is a genius! I was simply blown away by his thinking and invention. However, I thought the effect with a bill was repeatable for strolling situations. However, Marcus makes up for that by including an alternative routine which is just as impactful as using the dollar bill. In fact, once you learn the principle, you can do it with just about anything with paper. If you want that effect that will knock them off their feet, this is the one. Well worth the money.

Possibly the best download I've purchased from Penguin, and I've purchased a lot. Great gimmick that makes for a beautiful torn and restored. Several different presentations are shown and they are all top-notch. Thanks Marcus. This is truly a gift at this price.

You need to rip a dollar bill for a setup and it doesn't tell how you do the first rip and restore in the video!
