 This trick, using a cap made of leather, is described as "The Penetrative Cents" in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​17903/​The+Magician+s+Own+Book+or+The+Whole+Art+of+Conjuring/​38|The Magicians'​ Own Book]]//, Anon., 1857, also published as //The Boy's Own Conjuring Book//, Anon., 1859. See p. 27 of the former. In this version, the stack also passes through a tabletop, rather than a spectator'​s hand, adding the improbable complication of a small shelf under the table, which is activated by a foot pedal to drop a stack of loose coins. Variations, including one in which a small ball transposes with the stack of coins, are given on p. 49. The fine idea of penetrating someone'​s hand, rather than a table, may be Leipzig'​s contribution to this very old trick. This trick, using a cap made of leather, is described as "The Penetrative Cents" in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​17903/​The+Magician+s+Own+Book+or+The+Whole+Art+of+Conjuring/​38|The Magicians'​ Own Book]]//, Anon., 1857, also published as //The Boy's Own Conjuring Book//, Anon., 1859.
