Welsh Miller (1864-1936), born Henry Miller, would achieved fame with his coin manipulation act, whom T. Nelson Downs called his most skillful imitator.
Miller would tell magicians he was born in Scotland and published several of his effects in The Sphinx just before his death by jumping from the fourth floor of the Mason Temple in Brooklyn.
He may have invented the Coin Wand along with many types of coin droppers. he would often perform on subway trains in New York, setting up a folding table in the aisle and actually present his act.
