Coins > Shell Sets

When it comes to precision-crafted shell sets, you have a choice! Expanded vs unexpanded. Some magicians swear by one, some swear by the other, and some use each in a different context. Each has its own strengths and its own limitations.

Expanded Shell Sets use an expanded shell along with ungaffed inner coins which are hand-picked for an exact size-match as well as for overall appearance matching. With expanded shells, it is possible (with some searching) to find other ungaffed, matching fits. An expanded shell might also fit your other normal-sized gaffs, like your flipper coin.

Unexpanded Shell Sets use an unexpanded shell along with inner coins which are shaved & re-edged to match their originally minted edging. Since the shell in unexpanded, it suffers absolutely no distortion, and since the inner edge of the shell and the outer edge of the inserts are both hand-milled by me, the perfectly-round match is more exact than in an expanded set. Also, re-milled edges make for a better palm-grip.

Note:
When a standard Loonie is nested within an expanded Loonie shell, there are tiny gaps between the inner coin's flat sides and the shells round inside. This reduces your ability to show the ensted pair from the rear. The same goes for other non-round coins.

These coins can, however, be used as shells to contain smaller, round coins. Simply specify what coin you want to go inside, and I'll make the shell to fit.
