Thread Name: Folklore: why is the US dollar called a 'buck?'
Subject: RE: BS: why is the US dollar called a 'buck?'
The only reference I ever saw to Young Buck was to an elegant young gentleman in regency period, it refered to their penchant for wearing Buckskin breeches. It was Beau Brummel who was credited with changing from breeches to trousers.
