MORE ON VIETNAMESE NGOC HA GOLD WAFERS

Greg Anglin writes:

I was a Marine in Vietnam 1969-70. One day, I was in a local market in Danang, and a Vietnamese civilian next to me pulled out a roll of thin gold foil & proceeded to cut off a piece to pay for an item. I was fascinated by this & never forgot it. Howard Daniel's article in The E-Sylum is the first mention of this I have ever seen or heard of since I left that lovely climate many years ago. I recall the roll of gold foil was (loosely rolled) about 1 inch in diameter.
