Word of the Day: Shinplaster

Since receiving a Word A Day Calendar, I've decided to write a short something including my new word each day.

noun

1. a plaster for the shin or leg.

2. Informal.

  1. a piece of paper money of a denomination lower than one dollar.
  2. money of little value, as that issued on insufficient security.

The cost of the necklace was so low, a mere shinplaster, that she was suspicious of it's origin.
