I started with a coin roll (not a sleight, I know, but that is what I learned first with coins!) The first slieght I learned was classic palm.

French Drop, maybe finger palm. Nope was definitely French Drop.... I think... hmmm. Smile

By the way Michael, loved your Encyclopedia dvd's of Coin Sleights. Good material. Good teaching style.
Higly recommended for the serious coin worker.

I think mine was the Down's Palm. French Drop was second. I think. Smile
In December of '06 I was diagnosed with a very rare cancer, Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans. One in a million people worldwide are diagnosed with this type of cancer annually. Sarcomas account for 1% of all cancers. Knowledge is power!

Finger Palm.

I even remember where I learned it: from the Paul Daniels TV Magic trick "Reflections" (Date:1981, Trick No. 23, Colour Code: Purple - Slightly Harder).

In fact, I still have the mirror and instructions for it, twenty-two years later. Looking at it now, "Reflections" was basically identical to "Twilight" (1979, Tayari Casel / Paul Harris). Daniels even refers to it in the instructions as "one of the greatest, classiest illusions - one that the world's top magicians perform."

Considering they were marketed for children, there were some real gems in the Paul Daniels range. I'd be interested to hear which specific trick other people learned their first sleights for...

Cheers,

Cy.

I remember doing the French Drop years ago before I ever became interested in all this stuff. Now I can give it name!!.
Then Classic Palm and literally just this week Back Thumb palm. Geesz was that difficult at first. Now, after only a week I do it more or less perfectly (though I do forget about the angles).
I know its been said before but to all beginners (like me) ,practice does really make Perfect. Don't be discouraged if you can't do a sleight, try another then return later.
