This is a very old trick. A lot of people have told me that they've seen their grandfather do it to them when they were kids. Basically you need a coin, preferably a quarter. It's very common, quarters are very common. You're going to put it in your right hand, or your left hand, if you're a lefty. And you're going to pretend to put it into your left hand. This is something called false transfer.

Just, basically what you're going to do is, if you're really putting it in your hand, it looks like this. You're going to practice with it, you're going to pretend to put it in. So basically you going to tilt your hand, and your thumb's going to hold onto the quarter, so it looks like this. And then you're going to squeeze, and it disappears. One more time. It looks like it goes into the left hand, and your right hand, with the quarter, should go dead. Squeeze, and disappears, and you could actually make it reappear from somebody's ear by just producing it from the ear just like this. So again, right hand, pretend to put it into your left...squeeze...disappears. And you're going to produce it from somebody's ear, just like that.
