The mentalist removes his wallet and extracts a dollar bill. Folding it in half, he holds it up so that the spectator has a clear view of one of the bill's serial numbers. Explaining that all U.S. paper currency has an 8-digit serial number, the mentalist asks the spectator to carefully look at the serial number and to mentally select any one of the 8 digits. The spectator is asked to confirm whether or not he had an absolute free choice of several different numbers. The spectator agrees. The spectator is asked if he would like to change his mind. When he is satisfied with his choice, the mentalist asks the spectator to call out the one number he mentally and freely selected. When he does so, the mentalist immediately shows everyone that without a doubt he knew in advance precisely which of the digits the spectator would mentally select.
