    I did 32 when I was 17 If I had bigger hands I know I could of done 52 but if u miss one that shouldn't count and u shouldn't get credit for any but if u try again with 1 less and catch them all ok but I had to make 3 stacks I don't think there anyway to do it straight up u couldn't catch them like that even if by some miracle u could balance that much unless u have Tony Robin's hands

    That's awsome that's my brother in law beating a world record

    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.

    Great job, Matt! And I'll be gunning for you soon... :)

  • Wasn't this an episode of Happy Days?

    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".
