This came from an old magician’s estate purchase. The 12 page instructional booklet is titled “The Paul Belanger Cigarette Thru Quarter” but what came with this is a gimmicked half dollar. The working and handling appear to be the same for either coin.
Effect: The magician borrows a half dollar and a cigarette. He asks a spectator to try and make the half dollar “stick” to the end of the cigarette. The spectator obviously fails. The magician then does what the spectator was unable to do: the half dollar mysteriously sticks to the end of the cigarette. Then the cigarette is pushed right through the center of the half dollar! At the end, all may be examined.
Note: For the non-smoking crowd the trick can also be performed with a rolled-up dollar bill as we have pictured.
