His definition of "real" is gold, silver, palladium, platinum, billon, etc. 
Think of things measured in "troy ounces" instead of avoirdupois. That's 
what "specie" stands for.

Granted, depending on the metal, you could get a *lot* of chili for 31.103 
grams of 999 fine... ;-)

FRN is short for Federal Reserve Note - i.e. - that worthless green ugly 
crap in your wallet.
