    good made and clever idea.

    This is very nice and clever idea. The quality is well made. I own this for years and still good in working. Never stuck.

    I just wanna know how much it is cost for this trick today? Can I get it now in magic shop or this is old antique magic??


    Chan – this is an old Jack Hughes item, and this version is no longer available.- Andy

    Jack Hughes, the legendary British Inventor, Craftsman, and Dealer who invented many staples in magic that we take for granted today (including: TV Card Frame (1936), Attaboy (early 1930s), Clatter Box (1963) and many more. He also invented this beauty (or an earlier version of it at least) Coins in Glass (before Copenetro)  even though when Bob Kline introduced his version of Coins in Glass called Copenetro (with the same method) almost 10 years later in 1947, he claimed he had invented it and that Jack Hughes was the pirate.  I think history speaks for itself here and there is little doubt in my mind that Jack Hughes was the originator of the Visible Coins to Glass effect that many people attribute to Bob Kline. You can read more here.

    I used to perform this version of the effect all the time as a teenager and into my 20’s – it was always easy to set, reliable in operation, and a great crowd pleaser.
