A Good Coin Trick

A Good Coin TrickThe performer borrows a half-dollar, and taking it in the hand and bending the left arm, pretends to rub the coin into the left elbow. The coin drops on the floor, but he picks it up and tries again. Again it drops, and again he picks it up, but this time with the left hand, when he takes it apparently with the right, but really, by means of the drop, leaves it in the left hand. The fingers recommence the rubbing of the elbow, as though they still held the coin; but meanwhile with the left hand, which is brought by the bent position of the arm closer to the neck, drops the coin inside the performer's collar, to be found at pleasure. Meanwhile the performer continues the rubbing, presently removing the fingers, and showing that apparently the coin has passed into his elbow, both hands being empty.
