Subject: RE: BS: Mid 20th Century term for US paper money
Common usage when I was a kid and still heard and used by people of my generation here in the great unwashed midwest. Probably more popular than the "face naming" when I was younger with the "a Jackson" or "a Lincoln" more popular now.
I would tend to agree with John here as it was probably a product of the times.
