Quarter Go-Plus by Viking Mfg., Haenchen(c. 1954,2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: This is the original Lippencott/Martin version of the Lippencott Box, as made by Haenchen for Harold Martin with new magnetic feature.
A borrowed and marked coin (a ring may also be used) vanishes only to appear in a small padlocked box all while in full view.
A spectator marks a borrowed quarter for identification. This is placed within the folds of a handkerchief and held by spectator. Next, a small-padlocked chest (2x2x1) is shown and placed on the spectator’s open palm. A magical pass and the hank is whisked away revealing that the coin has vanished. Attention is drawn to the chest, which has been under the spectator’s control throughout. He opens the chest himself and finds the marked coin inside!
Remember: The chest is in full view before the coin vanishes. The coin found in the chest is the actual marked coin.
NEW ADDITION: 1. Our box is now slightly larger to accommodate US Silver Dollar sized coins. 2. We have added a hidden magnet to the base for some really great transpositions and penetration effects. All you need is a steel shim coin. 3. New, updated instructions with various routines.
Size: 2 1/16″ x 2 1/16″ x 1 9/32″ outside measurements. Inside: 1 19/32″ x 1 19/32″ x 13/16″ deep.
Chest made of select hardwoods with brass hardware and lock. Finest Viking quality.
Approx. Price: $35.00 (2003) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
