In 1994, Rich Block and Nick Ruggiero released one of the most prized creations in the Collectors’ Workshop stable: Silver Odyssey II. It was a real beauty to behold. Now Twenty-Five years later George Robinson has created Silver Odyssey III and it looks and works perfectly.
Internally it does not look quite as stunning – gone are all the gleaming brass and copper components – but noone but the performer ever saw this anyway and it now it works perfectly and more reliably than ever before. Like the previous versions it does not come with any way to vanish the coins (?). My suggestions would be to use one of these devices:
If you have ever dreamed of performing this effect then I suggest you contact George – he has already sold out twice this year and I don’t know how many more runs he will be making. It is most certainly the perfect Coins To Glass effect.
Effect: The performer begins by displaying four coins at his fingertips. He then tosses them, one by one through the air where they seem to vanish only to be heard arriving across the room. Each coin visibly penetrates an inverted tumbler, landing in a mouth-up shot glass.
The effect is visible, audible and sensational. It’s not a new effect, of course. Conradi, Martinka, and, more recently, Bob Kline and Jack Hughes issued wonderful versions. But before now, the glasses had to be carefully mounted on a wooden base and held by the performer or his assistant. That’s just not the way we wish to do it.
We think the glasses should rest on a beautiful English tea service tray. We think you ought not to go anywhere near the tray and glasses. That’s why we built Silver Odyssey. This masterpiece of precision engineering was designed and developed at Collectors’ Workshop to meet the most demanding standards of close-up, club and even stage performing. Your pride in performing the effect will be matched only by your joy in owning this remarkable piece of craftsmanship. The entire effect is self-working – no sleights, no assistants.
Because everything is controlled from a transmitter the size of a matchbook, you are free to ‘choose the moment’.
You receive the marvelous tray, glasses and complete routine, plus custom Protective case.
(Notice: as released this does not include the Tony Karpinski coin stand (a $55 value), the half dollars or the silk hanky that are shown in the video. However, if you win and want to pay an extra $30 I will include the stand and silk hanky in a separate package – the stand will not fit in the custom protective case due to its tight fitting. Use your own coins.)
