Slide Technique

While commonly associated with David Roth's “Original Chinese Coin Assembly” (see David Roth's Expert Coin Magic by Richard Kaufman, 1985, p. 65), and Derek Dingle's “International Coin Trick” (Dingle's Deceptions by Harry Lorrayne, n.d. but late 1970, p. 40), this technique was first published by Ross Bertram in Stars of Magic, 1951, where it is used in his “Rub Down” (p. 19) and “Coin Assembly” (p. 136).
