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.
