The effect:: Any bank note (any currency- one, five, ten etc.) is taken out and given to the spectator to examine. The magician tears a half-inch piece from the bill, right before the eyes of the spectator, very clearly and slowly. The bill is shown to have a missing piece and the torn section can be felt by the spectator. The missing piece restored to the area on the bill from where it was torn with a gentle massage by the magician. Open the bill and it is completely restored using magic!
This was Jimmy Grippo's favorite pocket-close up effect that he performed for the public. It was a miracle in his hands. You will make this one of your favorites as well, especially one someone asks you to perform a trick.
