Authentic Johnson coins are increasingly difficult to come by- especially vintage ones like this one!
We could not find another Johnson Ultimate Expanded Shell for sale anywhere on the Internet.
Johnson coins are considered to be- hands down!- some of the finest gimmicked coins made.
The precision, the careful craftsmanship, means that each coin is designed to do what it does flawlessly and smoothly.
An investment in a Johnson coin will give you a lifetime of magical pleasure.
One of the most deceptive devices in every magician's repertoire has always been the expanded shell coin.
The expanded shell fits over a coin, making it possible to produce two coins when it looked like there was only one coin, and the reverse- making one coin visibly vanish.
In the right hands, miracles can take place with this ingenious piece of apparatus.
Johnson Products pioneered the expanded shell made from sandwiched coins.
FROM JOHNSON COINS:
"Johnson Products Ultimate Expanded Shell is "the last expanded shell you will ever buy" because it is the best expanded shell you will ever buy!
After years of experimenting, Johnson has finally produced the Ultimate Expanded Shell.
This is not just an "improved version".
The technique for expanding the coins is totally different from anything used in the past, and is nothing short of revolutionary.
Only one coin is used.
Nothing is added, therefore nothing can become loose or break.
Set the Ultimate Shell on the table with some regular coins, and you will not be able to tell the difference!
Until it actually covers another coin, you will simply not believe it is an expanded shell."
This shell coin will fit over any regular U.S. half dollar.
The advantage of using a TAILS shell is that you don't have to worry about matching dates between the shell and your real half dollar!
CONDITION: excellent (see photos).
Made from a real U.S. half dollar, so you can polish it up periodically to match your regular half dollar coins.
