Coin Through Glass

In the October 1958 issue of Genii Lee Henneberry contributed “Coin through a Glass” (Vo. 23 No. 2, p. 57). This is 98% identical to Ross Bertram's “Coin into a Tumbler”. The only difference is that Henneberry hits the thumbtip of the throwing hand against the bottom of the glass, which may make the accuracy of the move somewhat easier than Bertram's non-contact throw of the coin. Bertram didn't publish this trick until September 1964, in The Gen, Vol. 20 No. 5, p. 119. Thus Henneberry preceded Bertram in print by roughly six years.
