Lassen Companion TT Set by Todd Lassen(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: This was a brilliant idea to the standard Triple Threat…why not in copper and a companion set to the silver dollar Triple Threat. The possibilities are endless with these two. This set uses that new copper pattern coin I discussed in UWC #2 set….gorgeous set as Todd included two normal copper coins with the gaff.
The first image shows the gaff with the shells up, if you hadn’t noticed, and you can see the workmanship is amazing…bet the wider rim allowed Todd to achieve a trimmer fit without that “potato chip” final insert. Practically looks like just one coin. The next two images shows the un-nesting of the gaff.
This was one of only 5 from a total of 25 that was left without the “sauce” that gave the coins a dark toned look. I preferred the brilliant clean look to match the other gaffs in my collection that used this copper coin. I also prefer nature to tone the copper with time. Most highly recommended as is all of Todd’s work.
Approx. Price: $320.00 (2009) ***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.
