The Bond charecter with the money clip was Red Grant, his was made "of" a $50 Mexican Gold coin attached. Fleming really meant a 50 Peso coin, which is about the size of the old US Silver dollar.
Prehaps someone can post a real world picture of the clip so those interested can better appreciate the actual size.
I think this is one of the many cases where one must "interpet" what Fleming wrote down.
I have seen many "coin" money clips, most are like the David Pell version with a coin soldered onto the "face" side.
I would speculate that is what Grant had.
Question: In Moonraker, Bond is trying to figure out what to do with the money he has won from Drax. Amoung the items he considers buying are "three diamond clips". I have never been able to figure out what these were. Could they be money clips?
Anyone care to speculate .....
