They'll want to see this one again!
Incredibly fine precision-made limited edition version of the legendary Bite Out Coin- the one you saw performed on a TV special starring magician David Blaine. Because there were only 1000 of these precision coins made- when they are gone, they are gone for good!
Take a "bite" out of a real quarter- and instantly restore it, right before the spectator's eyes! It even shows the bite mark! Many effects are possible!
If you think our regular Bite Out coins are great, wait until you see the amazing quality of this limited edition one! Microfine precision cut on a state-of-the-art machine, the edge groove that holds the rubber band in place is perfect and chamfered, making it perfectly smooth and prolonging the life of the rubber band. The cut forming the two parts of the coin is incredibly precise- meaning there is no gap or visibly detectable cutline.
And you can even do the Coin in the Bottle trick with this one! One minute the coin is in your hand- and in the blink of an eye, the coin is INSIDE a soda or beer bottle!
Replacement rubber bands are available from MagicTricks.com. See more tricks with QUARTERS!
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."
