Chinese Money Mystery by J.B. Bobo
Modern Coin Magic by J.B. Bobo 1952
Page 154 et seq.
Personal Comment: J.B. Bobo doesn't credit anybody with this. And he usually does throughout the book. He also says when he is not the originator. So I assume he made it up. I would like to say that this is a gem, and that it is seen not enough these days. I wish I could say that the effect has a heavy impact with any audience. That the scope of the trick makes the people believe that all 8 coins traveled, instead of just three of them. And I wish I could say that it is rather easy to do... but this is a lousy card trick. Where are the cards? Answer me that!
