Silver Odyssey II by Collectors’ Workshop

(c. 1994) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

From the original owners of Collectors’ Workshop, Rich Bloch and Nick Ruggiero, comes this stunning piece of apparatus.
Effect:

A piece of custom-crafted wizardry that raises the miracle of this coin penetration to new heights. Four half dollars penetrate an overturned pilsner glass (visibly) to land inside a mouth-up shot glass. We think the glasses should rest on a beautiful English tea service tray. And, in the interest of artistic symmetry, the coins ought to be removed from another glass, not a stand. We think you ought not to go anywhere near the tray and glasses. That’s why we built Silver Odyssey.

This masterpiece of precision engineering was designed and developed at Collectors’ Workshop to meet the most demanding standards of close-up,club and even stage performing. Your pride in performing the effect will be matched only by your joy in owning this remarkable piece of craftsmanship. The entire effect is self-working — no sleights, no assistants. Because everything is controlled from a transmitter the size of a matchbook, you are free to ‘choose the moment‘.

One of the problems with this incredible effect is that the mechanism is so beautiful, intricate and clever, and is created from a blend of beautifully finished hardwoods, gleaming brass and copper components, that you are almost compelled to show people how it works.

They truly don’t make them like this anymore!

    This is the Ultimate!

    I’ve always loved the coins to glass effect, and Silver Odyssey is without question the ultimate prop for this effect. The electronics are beautiful just to look at and work flawlessly everytime. The only downside with this effect is that Collector’s Workshop do not supply an equally impressive prop for vanishing the coins.

    Should frame and hang up the mechanics as Art!

    The Coins Thru Glass…what can I say about this timeless classic. I have an original Kline Copenetro. I love the nicely turned wood base and it’s simplicity, but always had a soft spot for fancy mechanical marvels. Add to the intricate clever mechanics beautifully finished hardwoods, gleaming brass and copper components, and you have a true work of Art. As the title of my review states, this is the one single piece in my entire collection that could be hanged as Art and just be admired on that merit alone. I guess you just have to see this apparatus to know what I am talking about.

    I do own one of the first mechanical version of Silver Odyssey with the oval tray, but the electronic version I just acquired from George Robinson is breathtaking. He has certainly kept, if not surpassed, the strength and quality of the CW line. As Andy did point out in his review, the one issue with this piece is the failure to provide an impressive vanish for the coins. I have been thinking of a Lassen 4 nested 1964 Kennedy gaff with the last vanish using a Devil’s hanky that’s been conveniently draped over the glass for the initial 2-3 coin appearances… will see.

    From the original owners of Collectors’ Workshop, Rich Bloch and Nick Ruggiero, comes this stunning piece of apparatus. The first version which was not remote controlled came out c. 1989 and this remote controlled version c. 1994.
