You must know how to use a shim shell coin.

Tips & Ideas

Difference between a SHIM SHELL and an EXPANDED SHELL:

This shim shell is the EXACT SAME SIZE as a quarter, but is only a hollowed-out shell.
It DOES NOT fit over a real quarter.
You CAN hide a smaller coin like a dime underneath it.
The shim shell is also able to stick to a magnet.
The expanded shell is a shell that is slightly larger than a real quarter.
It is made to fit OVER a regular quarter.
Thus, for example, making it look like you have two coins in your hand, and when the shell is secretly pushed over the real quarter, it makes it look like you have only one coin.


Make sure you don't spend the trick coin by mistake!
Keep your trick coins safe and separate from other coins.
Keep them in a COIN CARRIER.

Performance Ideas:

You can use this coin to change a quarter into another coin. For example, place the Shim Shell on your hand with a dime coin hidden underneath. Palm off the shell in your favorite manner (and since the shell is shimmed, a magnet can be used) to make it appear as though the quarter has changed to a dime.

Looks real. I use it with the phantom kit. Works every time.

Always carry it with me. The best illusion I do with it is to make a quarter go thru a glass table top.
