    Depends.

    Assets?
    Buying?
    Selling?

    Re: How many?

    I just finished counting and reached a grand total of <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>1,935,360</font color=yellow></span hi>

    I used the following conversion table

    <table border=1><tr><td valign=bottom>8 bits

    Spot on.
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>You have exactly the same answer as me. This question came about during one of my team daily banters over tea and biscuits (How very British). One of the team did a Google and got exactly the same answer as you. Apparently it comes from Spragmore's guide to customary weights and measures. I did a search for Spragmore+mickle in Google and got my first Googlewhack!!!</font color=yellow></span hi>
