Weights, Measures, and Money, of All Nations (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Weights, Measures, and Money, of All Nations The tables given in this part of the work need no explanation save in one particular. In the tables which relate to coinage the weight is expressed in troy grains, and the fineness in thousandths. Thus a gold coin is 900 fine when it contains in parts 900 of pure or fine metal. It will be noticed in many cases that the absolute metal value of a coin varies from its assumed the oretical worth. Variations of this sort are, however, generally triﬂing, although obviously unavoidable altogether. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
