The New York foreign exchange rates below, provided by Reuter Money Service, are selling rates among trading banks of $1 million and more as quoted early afternoon in New York. Retail transactions provide fewer units of foreign currency per dollar. 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.
