Pencil Thru Coins
Three borrowed 10p coins (or American Quarters) are placed into a plastic case. A small sheet of paper is placed over the coins, the lid is then closed. One Pencil or 3 pencils are thrust through the case and penetrate the solid coins! When the paper is pulled out it has holes right through it but amazingly the coins can still be seen right where the pencils were pushed through the case and totally unharmed !?!?
This is an amazing visual close up effect
