Twenty Four - Eighty

Posted by Kristoffer on October 27, 2003

Does anyone know the origin of the term twenty four - eighty. I saw an Old Nancy Drew film from 1939 where the term was used several time. Often it was used as "I'll bet you twenty four eighty" There appeared to be no context comment in the film. I thought it must have been a term from the time period.
