    Tremendous video, though at least one coin is clearly heard falling against the ground. We've denied past submissions for not catching all quarters. Therefore, I think we need to deny this attempt. Clay, will you try again?

      I Agree with you Dan. This is awesome but, one quarter obviously dropped. Breaking rules 2 and 3. - must catch all quarters balanced - any dropped quarters automatically disqualifies the attempt

    Read the rules. You have to catch every coin placed upon the elbow. Jimmy Thompson, nice try, doesn't count for squat.

    Some coins were dropped you can hear it. Coins were not visible when counting.

    Good point. Once they get to a certain height, it's really hard to keep them balanced for long so I usually stack and go as fast as possible (it takes too damn long to pick them all up!).

  • Very impressive. Seeing a little more hang time before you drop your elbow would be a bonus.

  • That's "8all".
