Methods of Palming Coins

Methods of Palming CoinsFig. 33 represents a photo of the author's hand palming coins in three different styles : ordinary, thumb and finger-palm. It is, of course, on rare occasions found necessary to make use of the three at one time, but it is useful to use two of them when, for instance, the performer desires to change secretly some borrowed coins for substitutes. The latter are first of all ordinary or finger-palmed, and the borrowed ones received and thumb-palmed, the duplicates, which the audience imagine to be the borrowed ones, being simultaneously placed in full view. By means of a judicious combination of the above palms a number of excellent tricks will readily suggest themselves to the performer.
