Life Savers and Dollar Bill Mystery by Devin Knight

If you like the effect of bill in lemon, but not all the mess it creates, then this is for you. It's a borrowed bill to impossible place, with the spectator given multiple choices.

Five sealed rolls of Lifesavers are placed in a candy dish and left in full view of the audience at all times. A dollar bill is then borrowed from any spectator who reads off the serial number of the bill while the performer writes it in full view of the audience on a whiteboard. Whiteboard with the serial number is left in full view so that all may see it at all times. No miscalling of numbers here, as the spectator reads them off.

Now read this carefully. The spectator (no stooge) is asked to take any roll of Lifesavers from the bowl. There is no force; he has a free choice of a roll. He does this before he hands you the bill to vanish. Bill is returned to you and you cause it to vanish under a handkerchief. "Good thing I gave you a roll of Lifesaver's for collateral. I heard that the company is currently running a promotion. Inside select rolls of Lifesavers are a valuable surprise," you say.

The spectator is then asked to open his chosen roll of LifeSavers' package. Inside the chosen roll he finds a rolled-up dollar bill. The serial number on the dollar bill matches the one written on the whiteboard that has been in view of the entire audience at all times.

Remember, you never go near the Lifesavers or the whiteboard during the entire time. There are no stooges or forcing in this trick. This gets away from the mess and fuss of dealing with a messy lemon or orange. A novel idea that is baffling beyond words. No thumb-tip is used to vanish the bill. Very easy to do and includes a logical storyline. Do something your audience hasn't seen before.

Very similar to impossible bill in lemon. Basic idea to Scott Guinn's pro bill in lemon. Very easy. Have to make a visit to your bank. But you need 6 bills instead of 10 or more as other versions. Does solve the juice problem. Lifesavers are cheaper and last way longer than lemons, kiwis, oranges since those are usually sold by the bag. Recommended.
