What does “Hundredweight” mean?
Hundredweight (abbreviated cwt) is an old unit of measure with different values that was used in trading, and dates back to the Middle Ages. In the British Imperial system, it was settled on having a measurement of 8 stone or 112 pounds. Though mostly defunct, hundredweight can still be found in the weighing of anvils and bells.
