Past President (2003-04) Eric Henning did a "Marked Coin in Nest of Boxes" routine involving a boy, Justice, and a girl, Tesha. Tesha chose a golden dollar coin and each of them marked it with a permanent marker. Eric placed the marked coin into a handkerchief and the boy held the coin through the hank. Eric handed a miniature "Harry Potter" style wand to the girl; he then brought out a locked miniature treasure chest. The girl waved the wand and Eric said the magic spell. After some by-play, the coin vanished from the handkerchief and the boy opened the locked chest to find a smaller box inside, which contained jewels and the marked coin! Eric gave the coin to the boy and the wand to the girl and the audience gave them all a big round of applause.
