How to Knuckle-Roll a Coin Like Doc Holliday

Step 5: The Drop

And now we have come to the pinky.  If you simply roll the coin over your pinky like the other fingers, the coin will roll off onto the floor or your lap and you will not be able to repeat the rolling, which is not a good thing (see my final video. . .).  To be able to do this over and over we must return back to the starting point.  This is the first step to a repeat performance.

Having reached the gap between your ring finger and pinky, let the coin drop through the crack between the two.  This will take a bit of practice to keep from, once again, dropping it.  Check out the second picture to see how you catch the coin with your thumb as it falls through.  You're going to have to spend some time with this.  An online tutorial with pics and vid will never make you a master.  Doing it and practicing it is the order of the day.  But I digress.  Let's get on with it!

And without further ado, I bring you [Drum-roll please!] the return. . .
