Copenetro (Later Original) by Bob Kline(c. 1947) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
If you are going to use Copenetro you’re better off with an early original if you can. When you put them side to side you can tell the difference quite easily. The later ones are better than many copies, but in the early Kline ones the base is clearly, and deceptively, smaller in size especially the larger perimeter at the bottom. The top “flare” section of the base is beautifully turned with a nicer design than the later models. The “lip” at the top of the base where the inverted glass rest is larger causing a deeper recess to keep the glass more securely in place.
In my teenager years I performed Jack Hughes’ Visible Coins to Glass, which doesn’t look as pretty but for my money worked flawlessly for many years. I found it easier to set and release than every version of Copenetro that I have tried. I also found the coin vanishing stand more deceptive in Jack Hughes’ version.
