->''"It helps to understand the antique finances of the Witchfinder Army if you know the original British monetary system:\\
Two Farthings = One Ha'penny. Two Ha'pennies = One Penny. Three pennies = A Thrupenny Bit. Two Thrupences = A Sixpence. Two Sixpences = One Shilling, or Bob. Two Bob = A Florin. One Florin and One Sixpence = Half a Crown. Four Half Crowns = Ten Bob Note. Two Ten Bob Notes = One Pound (or 240 pennies). One Pound and One Shilling = One Guinea.\\
The British resisted decimalized currency for a long time because [[HypocriticalHumour they thought it was too complicated]]."''\\
