Quotations are offered rates of New York city banks relating to currency transfers of $1 million or larger. Foreign currency values are expressed in terms of currency units per dollar unless otherwise noted. To obtain the comparable dollar value, for those rates not quoted in dollars, divide into one. For example, when one U.S. dollar buys 6.9075 French francs, one dollar divided by 6.9075 francs equals $.1448 or 14.48 U.S. cents per franc.
