Subject: RE: Folklore: why is the US dollar called a 'buck?'
Arguing about whether the term buck first came into use in the USA is a bit daft when it seems to be about a time when neither country existed.

It would be surprising if there was any suggesting that 'buck' was a term used to refer to beavers on any site with any pretensions to speaking with authority. I'd not be the least surprised at anything that gets posted in the dafter reaches of the Internet.
