These three videos continue the series started with Expert Coin Magic Volumes 1, 2, and 3. (The confusion in the numbering is that these videos are lumped under the Expert Magic Made Easy series, and volumes 4 through 8 featured magic from Daryl and Carl Cloutier.) The current videos focus on magic with gimmicked coins and coin boxes.
Volume 9 discusses copper/silver gaffs and shell coins. Volume 10 contains routines for folding coins and other gaffed coins (Scotch and Soda, Cigarette through Quarter, and others), and Volume 11 has Okito coin box routines.
As I mentioned in my review of the first three videos, David is a good teacher and is extremely knowledgeable. In addition to discussing the routines, he also offers some very interesting historical information. There is a ton of material on these tapes, and if you are a budding coin guy, you certainly could not go wrong with any of these.
I did notice that the sound on the first tape dropped to a very low level. I don't know if this was a flaw in the production or if I just had a bad tape. If you liked the first set in the series, you'll like these. Recommended.
