Dear Aroiders,

could someone from the new world kindly convert that to cm (or German coins) for
someone from the old world?

Thanks in advance!

Bernhard.

Berhard,

We have had this issue of these USA'ers not using standardised measuring
sets before. WHEN will they learn that the world is a trifle larger than a
few isolated states and their idiosyncrasies...... GOOD LUCK!!!!!! I always
measure in ET (Elephant Trunks): 1 German coin = 1.2245 ET......

Bernhard, may I suggest that you change your question to, "Could someone
from the New World kindly *send* me some quarters and dimes so someone from
the Old World will know how big they are?" if enough people from the list
comply, you might get enough money to buy some new aroids.

Thanks Phil and Thanks George!

Compared with Wilberts advice yours seem to be easier to handle - I don't have a
standard ET to measure with......

Cheers,
Bernhard.

Thanks for advice, Wilbert.

But I must be a really poor ignorant guy..... I never had a coin of that
diameter in my purse nor heard of it (probably don't know the right
persons...) .....
