Elevator Coins Performed

Post by MadisonPresents » Thu May 03, 2018 2:34 pm

I finally got around to filming a bare bones performance of Elevator Coins.

It’s a good one! Quite a fooling trick. What are your thoughts on it? How many of you have it?

That is a good example of a seldom seen classic Tenyo and a good one indeed. Nice clean presentation Madison.

You are lucky to have one because you don’t see it available very often and somewhat expensive when it does turn up.
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

Thank you for the kind words and Yes I am lucky indeed! I got this one at a great price. I leapt at the offer because I hardly ever see them for sale.

This is indeed a very clean presentation of this marvelous Tenyo trick. I have it myself, bought it years ago BNIP for a very reasonable price. Despite the fact I have it myself , I was still surprised by your video Madison, my first thought was Huh, how is this possible? Then I remembered how it worked :) This remains a very impressive effect.

Thanks for the kind comment, Rob!

It is a very baffling effect. I never knew exactly how it worked until I recieved it. It’s a very nice illusion!

I don't know why this is one of the Tenyo tricks I have not been able to put my hands on...It's not that hard to find I believe, but for some reason I always come late for this one ...OK, maybe I have not put enough effort on this one.

The effect is very clean and direct and your performance is very good as usual.

This is a GREAT trick, very underestimated. Once again I ask you, Madison, if I can steal your performance/routine. Thanks in advance :D ;)

You can find it! I have faith in you. With all of the wacky and rare things you own, it’s amazing this isn’t in your collection. But I’m sure you can find it with all of your sources from over the years :D

Absolutely, David! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I agree it is very over looked. I think because the method isn’t as mechanical as people want, which makes them overlook the strength of the effect itself.

Thanks Madison,

Although I have had this for quite a few years, I have never been able to break the package and look at it. As I understand it, Tenyo items are less valuable if they are not BNIB. I wonder how many collectors have a Tenyo which is BNIB and do not open open them for that reason?

I watched your wonderful performance and wondered why I have never had a "look" at this cool trick.
and now, on with the show ...

I practice and make several takes before I’m fully satisfied with my videos. Even the ones that look simple haha

And I think many people collect BNIP. Personally, I don’t have any BNIP Tenyo. I have bought them like that, but I immediately open them. If they don’t get used, it kind of defeats the purpose of them in the first place.
