Triple Coin Boxes by Mel Babcock(c. 1995) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This effect was called Buried Treasure and invented and originally built by the ever creative genius Ed Massey c. 1957 and later built by Arturo (Glenn Babbs) c. 1964 and marketed by U.F. Grant and Abbott’s.
Mel Babcock makes beautiful wooden magic and the use of exotic woods just add that additional touch to these boxes. Mel used Paduk on the largest box, followed by Rosewood in the middle box, and finally Canary Wood in the smallest box. Simple method but so well put together that it’s a pleasure to perform.
Effect: A coin is borrowed from a spectator and he marks it for later identification. The coin is vanished. Attention is then directed to a box which has been in full view. It is opened and another box removed. This second box is handed to the spectator along with a key to unlock the box. Once opened, the box is found to be full of beans with the end of a ribbon sticking out. The spectator is asked to carefully pull the ribbon out of the box of beans. On the other end of the ribbon is a small box wrapped with rubber bands. This is opened and the spectator finds his marked coin.
