Coin-Fusion by Optical Oddities(c. 1987) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This is a unique little box from Optical Oddities Mfg. Co. released c. 1987. I believe Optical Oddities was Dave Pavlov’s company in Las Vegas that was formed c. 1981.
This box is different from anything else I have seen. The effect on the audience is similar to what can be be achieved by a Lippincott Box but there are no moving or sliding sides. The two issues I have with this are: it can only accommodate a coin about the size of half dollar nothing thicker or larger and it is difficult to do the move silently.
I personally believe this is more of a trick for magicians and still think Joe Porper’s original Strong Box is the best type of Lippincott Box available.
But an interesting unique method all the same 🙂
Effect: A half dollar is initialed by spectator, a pivot hinged box is removed from your briefcase (or pocket), box is tightly secured with small padlock. The sealed box is handed to the spectator. You then take the initialed coin.. And make it vanish! Spectator is asked to open locked box, and upon doing so. Initialed coin is found within.
- Compare with boxes costing 3-5 time as much.
- Box is solid “Honduras Mahogany.” Engineered to mechanical perfection.
- Beautiful lacquered finish, enhancing its appearance.
- No extra hidden gimmicks or parts. Box does it all.
- Unique method!!!
