Multiplying Coins

Multiplying CoinsPerformer borrows a half-dollar, which by rubbing slightly he causes to increase to two, three, four and then five half-dollars, which can be examined. On being returned he again rubs them, when all the coins excepting the borrowed one vanish one at a time. Sleeves are rolled up and hands shown empty before and after the trick.

Four coins are secretly palmed on the back of the hand, as illustrated in Fig. 42. The borrowed coin is received in the right hand, the hands are then brought together and the coins n B C D are brought to inside of hands one at a time. They are then passed for examination, and, when returned, D is palmed and then C B A slipped underneath each other part way. Borrowed coin is now returned to owner and the four coins pocketed.
