    To see the colour of somebody's money.

    How many idioms would exist that are equal to the meaning of this idiom:

    To see the colour of somebody's money.

    I can think of one too. It's probably the same one as Rover.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I don't know any. Not sure what you are trying to say.

    Re: To see the colour of (sb's) money.

    What does it mean, and what is the other way of saying it that you both thought of?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
