Subject: RE: Folklore: why is the US dollar called a 'buck?'
Sorry - still haven't seen the least bit of evidence as to when the term 'buck' was known or unknown in Canada. Evidence that it was known at one place at a certain time does not preclude the possibility that it was known at another place. As for the use of pounds and/or dollars - not relevant; there seems to be no question that a 'beaver' coin was used long before 1858 - neither pound nor dollar.
