These methods of vanishing a coin will prove helpful at times. The moves are natural and the effect is mystifying.
Take a piece of paper about five inches square,--newspaper or any opaque paper will do. Place coin a little above center of paper. Figure 43.
Fold up bottom edge of paper to within half an inch of the top edge. Figure 44. Fold right side of paper over in front. Figure 45. Then fold left side of paper over in front. Figure 46.
Fold top half-inch down in front. To all appearances, the half dollar is wrapped securely in the paper, but in reality the coin is in the rear partition with an opening at the top. Figures 47 (rear view) and 48 (front view).
Turn paper over so that opening is downward and hold in right hand as in Figure 49.
If someone is near you, let him feel the coin in the paper. Then allow the coin to slide out into your right hand, Finger Palm it, and take paper in left hand. Now all that remains to be done is to get rid of the coin in one of your pockets and then tear the paper up. Or, if you desire, you may tear up the paper with the coin still Finger Palmed and then produce the coin from some suitable place.
