As you move your right hand away to the right (pretending to hold the coin), turn the left hand such that your palm faces you and the thumb crotch is upward. Rest the left thumb on the curled middle finger and form the end of the forefinger into a "hook." See photo 66.
Tilt the forearm down to allow the ring to slide off it and catch it on the end of the finger, as shown in photo 67. Catching the ring in this way removes any possibility of the ring hitting the coin and giving away the true situation.
Extend the ring toward Boomer, asking him to take it (the coin is once again hidden in Ramsay subtlety) and to hold it horizontally about six inches in front of you about halfway between your chest and waist (photo 68).
