Do you have incredible strength??

Looks like an incredible feat of superhuman strength- done right in your bare hands! And it's SO EASY!
Yes, even a child can do this one!

The effect is wonderful: hold a penny between your fingers. Apply a bit of pressure, and everyone can clearly see the penny ACTUALLY BENDING in your hands!

You can even drop the bent penny into your spectator's hands at the end. No bending gimmick to get rid of! Very impressive!

You get a supply of the special coins you'll need, plus a tool so that you can reuse the coins.

The instructions are easy to follow- you'll be doing this one immediately!

History and Trivia:

Is it illegal to use real US coins to make magic tricks?
According to the U.S. Treasury F.A.Q., the answer is- No.
It is only illegal to alter a US coin with the intention of spending it as if it were a coin of a different value.
From the official U.S. Treasury website: "Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who 'fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.' This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent it [in a monetary transaction in trade for goods or services] to be other than the altered coin that it is. As a matter of policy, the U.S. Mint does not promote coloring, plating or altering U.S. coinage: however, there are no sanctions against such activity absent fraudulent intent."

Worked for me. I like that you have the materials to repeat this trick. I thought it was very impressive.
