    How much money is a "slat"?

    (source: Iceberg Slim - Pimp-The story of my life)

    The word surely refers to a certain amount of dollar. The question is how much?

    Re: How much money is a "slat"?

    A "slat" = one dollar.

    From Online dictionary and encyclopedia
    Slat: A dollar, a buck. "The tab was 12 dollars. I threw down a double sawbuck which left her with a fin and 3 slats for a tip"

    double sawbuck = $20
    fin = $5
