Copper Sandwich (Original) by Eddie Gibson(c. 1977) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Copper Sandwich was actually invented by Al Koran c. 1948 and was originally performed with a matchbox and the gimmicked coins of the time (see New Pentagram April 1973, pg. 13). Eddie Gibson refined it, using more advanced coins, and created the brass box for an even cleaner and more amazing penetration.
This is the original version of Copper Sandwich with UK coins and compares with this later version using US coins.
It is a great effect which is easy to do and leaves no clues as to how the penetration occurs.
Effect: The lid is removed and the brass box is shown to be empty. Three coins are placed in the box, 2 10p and 1 2p. The lid is replaced and the box picked up between finger and thumb.
A spectator is requested to tap on the lid of the box. He does so, and immediately one coin penetrates and falls from the base of the box – the copper coin. The lid is again removed and the two remaining coins are tipped out.
Sounds impossible, but it is accomplished very easily with the special box and coins provided.
