The term was in the US from somewhere.  I think I'll research that a "bit" more.

Yes, get back to us in a bit.

I'm seldom wrong, but I do have a damn hard time proving it sometimes.  I'm a sponge of facts I can seldom find again sometimes, but this isn't one of those times!

Yes, I have a vast library in my head, but the cat chewed up the card cat-alog ;-)

Well of course your mind is messed up a bit (and not by cats), but do you still disagree about coins sometimes being cut up?

I didn't .. someone else did, and I said ... it happened in some places at some times.  Ask this of my Spanish colonial coin collection.  I have only seen a photo of a genuine cut silver ... though I have a fake one someplace.

You specifically said (against my claim that coins were once cut) "nother origin of name .. two bits isn't due to the cutting, but that there were 2 reales coins ... 1/4 of an 8 reals coin (piece of eight) and twice a 1 real coin.  But coins smaller tan the piece of eight were found in Spain, not in the New World so much".

Origin of a name ... which confuses the question of cut silver.  I have a 2 real cob from Mexico City ... that is 2 bits, though it isn't cut.  A bit = 1 real.

You are determined to ignore my evidence of cut coins.  I'll repeat:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

A good but incomplete description (featuring N America only).
