A classic book specifically written for the Okito Coin Box!


The Okito Box booklet contains all the information you need to know to make the most of the amazing Okito Coin Box!

What is an OKITO BOX?
An Okito Box is magical mystery at its finest!
The Okito Box is simply that- an ungimmicked metal container with a bottom and a loose-fitting lid.
There are no gimmicks, no secret compartments.
The magic is pure sleight of hand- it's all about the clever way this box operates when it is handled properly.

This is an amazingly versatile coin magic effect that has lots of potential, and lots of routines!
This small brass box can be used to make half dollars vanish, appear, multiply, travel, etc.

This classic booklet by the legendary Lewis Ganson has one of the best instructions written on the Okito Coin Box.
It even has a chapter on using magnetic coins with the Okito Box.
It's "old store stock" (brand new, but actually printed in 1978), but this booklet is widely considered to be one of the easiest to follow books on the subject.
Loaded with photographs, this booklet gives detailed instruction on the proper handling of the Coin Box, and also contains some excellent complete routines!
There are even bonus ideas by Okito Box expert Edward J. McLaughlin.

This is the BOOKLET ONLY.
You need your own Okito Coin Box to do the tricks in this booklet.

History and Trivia:

From the introduction:
In 1911, Okito (Theo Bamberg) was in partnership with Joe Klein in a magic shop on Broadway, New York.
Joe suffered from indigestion and kept his boxes of pills in a drawer in the shop.
Okito often handled the pill boxes and noticed that the lid would fit on both bottom and top and in each case, the box looked the same.
He had some made up in metal instead of cardboard, of such a size as to take coins and so the "Okito Coin Box" was born.
Since they were first marketed by the Bamberg Magic and Novelty Company, dealers all over the world have manufactured and sold these boxes.
Different ideas have been incorporated, such as weighting the bottom to make it turn over easily.
