Thanks for responding to my request, Tony.  Let's have a few more
people introducing themselves.

Hmm. slightly inaccurate data: a 'dollar' is 5/- (or a crown) and the
half-crown (12.5 UK pence now) was affectionately known as 'half a
dollar' when green vegetables were not grown to fit on supermarket
shelves and (required reference to plant biology) I was studying
Agricultural Botany ...
