-This one-handed transformation of a coin, which occurs as the coin is tossed into the air and caught, uses the Tenkai pinch in a very effective way. The change was first described in Bobo's //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​76341/​Modern+coin+magic/​385|New Modern Coin Magic]]//, 1966, p. 361, where it is credited to Howard ​Schwartzman. The change, however, is a variant of a much earlier change contributed by "G. J."​---presumably editor George Johnson---to //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​73243/​The+magic+wand/​135|The Magic Wand]]//, Vol. 4 No. 45, May 1914, p. 721. Johnson'​s article describes a sequence of one-handed changes, of which the toss change is a second transformation. The second coin is concealed by and tossed from back palm. Schwartzman's change uses almost identical actions but conceals the coin in Tenkai pinch rather than back palm.+This one-handed transformation of a coin, which occurs as the coin is tossed into the air and caught, uses the Tenkai pinch in a very effective way.
