First of all have you noticed how the addition of sound effects adds an entirely new -dimension to tricks. For instance, the sliding die box, biting a plate etc.
Passing the last coin through the table is enhanced by the sound of the fourth coin being knocked against the underside of the table with the right hand as the left hand supposedly performs this action on the table top. The refinement on this is, I believe, attributable to Mr Dai Vernon and consists of scraping the "coin" along the table top — really beneath the table — before allowing it to click flat on the table.
In the four coin assembly beneath a playing or post card, a coin can be "pressed" througlrthe card audibly by stacking the second coin on the first, and pressing it off with some force (Fig.l). If working on a mat or soft surface, stack the third on the second and first, and third coin is allowed to snap against the first coin (Fig.2). In both diagrams the loaded coin is shown as X and, of course, has nothing to do with the sound effect.
