Washout by Steve Dusheck, Eddie Gibson(c. 1979)
One of my favorite gimmicked coin effects! I remember seeing the Eddie Gibson version of this in 1977 and loved it then and still do today.
A silver dollar is covered with a shining brass washer and immediately an American cent falls into performer’s palm, the dollar having vanished as so many dollars are wont to do. You can patter about inflation, deflation or whatever. It comes complete with a “bang ring” to get it ready for the next performance. The washer can be shown on both sides and who would suspect the little penny!
I’m not sure how is the originator. I have seen it advertised as Steve Duscheck’s c. 1979 and Eddie Gibson c. 1975. The Eddie Gibson version I saw used a smooth shiny brass washer without the lines.
