What may work for you though, is that if you place the two coils,
perhaps in series, perhaps adjacent, one with the light bulb connected
and the other with the battery, you may see the light bulb illuminate
briefly when you disconnect the battery.  This is due to the rapidly
diminishing magnetic field produced by the coil connected to the C battery.

I think that is enough random comments from me.

Good Luck,
