  Professor Florian  Cajori, dean  of  the

announced his discovery of the "ancestor"
of the American dollar mark, in the Popular
Science Monthly. He informs us that the
dollar mark is the lineal descendant of the
Spanish abbreviation C"Ps" for "Ipesos,"
or Spanish dollars, and it came into being
as a result of the business dealings con-
stantly in progress between Spanish-Ameri-
cans and English-Americans during the days
before the Revolution. The earliest known
use of it was in 1775, but it was seldom
used until after 1800.
