Years ago, when I worked for Tacoma Screw Products, they were still using a card
catalog to keep track of their warehouse stock.  You'd frequently see the 
quantity of
a keg of, say, 1/4" hex nuts written as "10M" meaning 10 thousand.  When I 
"Why isn't that a K?" it was explained to me that since "M" was the Roman 
for 1000, the notation made total sense.  I think it's a practice specific to 
the hardware 
industry, dating from before WWII.
