Old Timey Word of the Week

This week's old Timey word is "C-note." Not to be confused with the rap artist of the same name, C-note is one of many great ways to identify a $100 bill. 

The letter "C" is the roman numeral representation for 100.  And, paper bills are also known as bank notes.  When you combine the two you end up with C-note.  I used to hear this term more than I do now. I am of the opinion that it is a better term than some of the more common contemporary terms that have replaced it.  Would you rather hear, "C-note" or "Benjamin?"  I also enjoy simoleons, clams, and scratch.
