Version2 

Make the sign for "dollars" by extending your left hand, palm to the right. 

Grab your left fingers between the palm and fingers of your right hand. 

Pull your right hand away from your left hand.. 

On the sign for dollars, the right hand "slips off the left hand." The left hand stays in place.  This is different from the sign "lead."  (Meaning "guide")  In the sign for "lead" the right hand pulls the left hand forward.

Also, you might see the right hand grabbing the top edge of the left hand as in version 2.
