I'm a little confused about this.  Where is a "mill" actually a valid
amount for a financial transaction?  You certainly can't take one out
of a bank account. 

Is this just an anachronism?  Are there *any* places where correct
record keeping requires one to keep track of dollar values down to the
1/1000 of a dollar?
