Ever wonder where there term "Buck" came from?

The slang term "Buck", referring to a dollar, dates to pre-settlement time when deerskins (commonly called buckskins) were used to trade and barter for supplies. According to a report in 1779, "A large buckskin is valued at a Spanish dollar; two doeskins are regarded as equal in value to one buckskin."
