|Note to self: Here's your new rule of thumb, "Never buy a gimmicked American coin designed outside the US". This will probably work just fine in Europe where people are familiar with US quarters, but don't regularly use them, but for Americans ... it's a struggle to avoid scrutiny, suspicion and distrust. In dark lit settings it might pass, but in full lighting, it just looks too much like a gimmicked quarter.
Also, it's $300 retail for crying out loud. Crikey! Okay, so who is dumber? Crowe for thinking he can get away with charging this much for crap or me for paying that much for crap? (I have seen the enemy and he is staring at me in the mirror!) Do yourself a favor and do not repeat my dumb mistake! It is a crime to charge this kind of money and not deliver something that passes as the real deal. For $300 I should ALWAYS worry that I might somehow accidentally mix my Elite Bending Coin in with my change and spend it accidentally. But alas, that is the least of my concerns.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this coin. On the other hand, the principal behind the effect is good. So, on that note, I do like and recommend Perfect Nail Bend. It works on the same principle, it is convincing and costs a lot less money.
