Coin in Bottle
This is one of the oldest tricks in magic and perhaps one of the best. I understand Blackstone senior performed it on his large stage show. However the method of getting the coin out of the bottle is a bit weak. Some attempt to hold a coin next to the bottle at the end of the trick as if the coin were inside the bottle. I once attended a show where this method was used. The helper pointed at the coin and said, "The coin is not in the bottle!" After thinking about this for years I hit upon the solution presented here. The philosophy is to hit the bottle with the hand going in and hit the hand with bottle going out. It works fairly well but it still has a glitch.
