(Magic Agent #3, "Soldier Without a Gun") After being kidnapped by the Slovonian Secret Police, John Force is handed over to the hypnotist Dr.Petrov for interrogation. Force proves resistant to regular hypnotic techniques, until the Doctor discovers the coin while searching his captive's pockets. Using the coin to hypnotise Force, he makes him forget everything that has happened, and believe that he has lost his coin. However the hypnotic suggestion eventually wears off, and Force finds his way back to the hospital, where he overpowers Petrov and gets back his coin.
