13Long (1918) FINISHHAVE, FINISHED (colloquial)The colloquial and by far the most common method of rendering the sign for "finished" is to hold the right open or "5" hand out in front from the side and give it a flip toward the right, with a twist of the wrist so the palm is turned down. In indicating the complete tenses first sign "have" as for "possess," then give the sign for the verb, and last the sign for "have" or "finish" as above (HAVE, FINISH).15hsldb.georgetown.edu/books/book-window.php?id=13&refid=long1918
