The Penny Tails

by Real McCoy
(Rossville, Ga)

THE EFFECT: The magician spins a penny on the table and it comes down tails at least 95 times out of a hundred spins.

THE SECRET: Get a 1959D penny the edges on it are a little larger than other pennies. Spin the coin instead of flipping it, and when it is through spinning it will come down on tails almost every time.

TIP: Spin the coin on a slick surface like a bar or something made of formica and it will work even better.

All you guys have to do is go to a coin shop and they have 1959D pennies by the hundreds they will probably charge you about a nickol or dime for one of them, and don,t forget you spin the penny instead of flipping it and do it on a slick surface, you will be amazed how many times it will come up tails.
