    Yup,

    $28,000 for the custom made ring....actually that would be in Canadian dollars so about $21M U.S.

    28,000 CAD converted to USD is ( and exchange rate varies as always ) 21,360.55 . Or roughly 21 thousand.
    Uncle Bill used a M instead of thousand. ( Roman numeral M = 1000.)
    Great , now I'm thinking Uncle is wearing a toga.
    It can get confusing ( not the toga) .
    Some use 1M to mean a million and financial places can use M for a grand ( thousand) and MM for a million.

    If gambling I ' ll be sure to say grand or mil ! For a thousand or a million ,respectively.
    Well , no , it would be more like a dollar or ten dollars. A.k.a. buck or sawbuck. ( A budget matter not allowing risking a grand or mil.).
    A sawbuck being the Roman numeral 10 = X , which resembles the cross pieces used to hold a log to ...saw it. Even to buck it into desired lengths with a bucksaw ( seriously).

    WarBaby,

    Well you see all these folks walking around with tatoos he has or had a couple of tatoo parlors so there must be some nice profit in that line of work.

    And RelevantChair nailed it with the definition of thousand versus million I used to do a lot of financial analysis before I retired so used a lot of shorthand to describe numbers at times.

    Regards + HH
