Nice find Hobo. Hang onto it or try to keep it amongst collectors if you can.
What does "Fin" mean? Was that supposed to be "Hobo FRN"? (Federal Reserve Note)
The $5 bill is sometimes nicknamed a "fin". The term has German/Yiddish roots and is remotely related to the English "five", but it is far less common today than it was in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
We used "fin" when I was a kid.:grandpa:
Me too... but I'm a LOT older than you, lol.
What? A Brooklyn boy never hoid of fin?
Must be ancient history.
Ken, let's not forget a sawbuck ($10) and double sawbuck or a Jackson ($20). I hoid of all of them...but then again I'm old...er, seasoned.
Separate names with a comma.
