Jack Hughes’ Coins and Glasses

The magician places a small glass on the tray and then covers it with a larger upturned glass tumbler. The tray is then covered with a cloth. The magician picks up a coin and apparently throws it around the room, and all of a sudden the audience hears it land in the glass. This is repeated with three more coins. When the cloth is removed from the tray the audience can see that the coins have really landed in the small glass, despite it still being covered by the large glass. Davenports sold this trick which was very well made by Jack Hughes. The Jack Hughes instructions are also in the collection.
