-, Dr. Murray points out that these Records completely explain the term "tenpenny" nail. The price of nails was expressed in their cost per hundred: twopenny nails originally cost twopence per hundred, pp. 69, 73, 101; threepenny nails threepence, 73, 82, 120, 138; fourpenny nails fourpence, 84, 87, 120, 138; fivepenny nails fivepence, 84, 88, 135; sixpenny nails sixpence, 67, 82, 87, 138; and so with tenpenny nails, 67, 69, 72. These prices were retained until 14878, p. 138: after that date, however, the price dropped one penny per hundred, but the old designations were still used. Sixpenny nails were sold for fivepence per hundred, 151, 176, 281; fivepenny nails for fourpence, 173, 175, 210, 281; fourpenny nails for threepence, 176, 351; threepenny nails for twopence, 281, 340, 351; threepence was charged for two-hundred twopenny nails, 281; and tenpenny nails appear, on one occasion, to have been bought at eightpence per hundred, p. 176. Entries which apparently signify recurrence to original prices occur at pp. 165, 176, 229, 248.
