Coin Stitch

This is a U.F. Grant creation. The English Rights were held by Davenports. The effect is that a spectator hands the magician a marked coin, which is dropped into a small envelope. The spectator then pockets the envelope. The magician next shows two small cards which have been stitched together, before vanishing them by any favourite method. When the spectator takes the envelope from their pocket, they find the stitched cards inside it. The cards have to be torn apart and, inside, is the spectator’s coin. The Davenports advertisement for Coin Stitch is also illustrated, as drawn by Laurie who produced so much artwork for Davenports. Complete with instructions.
