24) THE POCKET I-CHING (1977)

by Wen-kuang Chu and Gary Melyan

Now. I must locate three interesting, identical
flipping coins - instead of using American coinage 
like some ill informed New Age sluggard.

get retribution against a fish is crazy.

I use three silver Kennedy half dollars.

I will concede an exception.  ;)

Acceptable due to heft (even more acceptable if they are 1964 mint, with that ringing 90% silver content.)

This interesting introduction pocket book endorses three Quarters.  Convenient, but lacking ritual anchoring/conviction.

That’s exactly what they are.  Full of ritual anchoring.

That makes me think of early Jonathan Lethem.

I use three silver Kennedy half dollars.

For now, I'm using three of these novelty coins. They are a little too thin, but feel better than American quarters. They were just $1.75 for three.  I bought three sets: one to use with the book, one fresh set to give to whomever I pass the book on to, and a third set to carry in my pocket as I become a walking talking feng shui money magnet.
