In case of a payment called for silver in small volume, but the payer only held one heavier sycee, then, to cut off the silver in need from the heavier sycee, might be one of the best solutions for then. It would be quite inconvenient for the payee to repay the change in cash coins, because of 1 tael silver was equal to 1,000 cash more or less, in most of the times, notwithstanding that exchange rate might have fluctuated, from time to time. Those cash coins for 1 tael silver could be weighted for 6 kilograms! And, still it would have to be multiplied by the number of tael that had to be changed. In fact, it was a hard task to collect so many cash coins in a short time, besides, it would also take a great pocket and muscle to bring them back.
