Vanishing Coins from Goblet

Three or four coins are borrowed and dropped into a goblet, which is then covered with a borrowed handkerchief. On removing the handkerchief the coins have disappeared.
Bore a quarter-inch hole three-quarters of the way through a coin and solder a wire across the top of it. Bore eighth-inch hole through the centers of two coins and a smaller hole through a fourth coin. Tie a thread to cross bar and thread eighth-inch hole coins on, and then the smaller hole one (see Fig. 40), and place a wax pellet on the loose end. Drop the coins in the glass (see Fig. 41) and attach wax outside, and cover with handkerchief. Grasp thread through handkerchief, shake glass, and then remove them in handkerchief and drop on servante.
