Going over a lot of my old material. Never discussed this, but after seeing some miscredits, just wanted to set the record straight.
Balance palm. Attributed to John Born. However, as I pointed out to John some years ago, I used that position on my second set of lecture notes (Creative Coin Magic) from 1985. I used it in a routine where my finger goes through the coin, and mentioned that I had previously showed the position to Mike Ammar in a color change, and had discussed the position and routine with Jay Sankey before putting the routine into print.
I never named the position, and have no idea if anyone used that position before me, but I have not seen it in print prior to my own move.
My reason for this post is for proper crediting.

Hello Doc.
Good evening.
I know this is an open Forum,
still I have to ask:
Where could I learn more about this Palm?

The name alone,
sounds intreguing(!).
A Michael Ammar 'Color Change' added to the discussion(!..!),
..I'm really curious!

Can you tell me some more?
,..or at least point a direction?
Thanks, 🙂
gallagher

p.s.: Is 'Creative Coin Magic' still availible?
What other 'finger-foolers' are discussed in the pages?
Thanks II. 🙃

Hi. As mentioned I believe I was the first ro use that position in the context of a routine. Much more work has been done by John Born and Brendan Wolf. As to where to find other references, you might check out Brendan Wolf's At the Table lecture dvd/download. I do not know where Born taught his techniques.It would probably be hard to find my notes outside of E Bay or if someone had them and wanted to sell. As context, Mike Ammar had nothing to do with the move. I showed him a color change using the concealment, and he noted that it looked like my finger went through the coin as it changed color. That caused me to abandon the color change and work on a penetration effect which I published.

You also asked what else was in the notes. It starts off with an audible coins to okito box called Okito Clinker, Crazy Coins Across which appeared on the NYCMS dvd series, Spellbound Times 3, also in that dvd series as well as my Penguin live lecture one, Sub Trunk 2, which has been updated on my Penguin live lecture 2 and At The Table lecture, and Triple Coin to Card, also updated on my Penguin live lecture one and At The Table lecture
