Well, not clearly:  "eighty-two fifty" is said both for 82.50 and
for 8250.

Except one and 23 is = 1.23 = 1 and 23

Wait a minute.  Now you're talking about "one and twenty three"--
weren't you arguing about "one hundred and twenty three" before?

Those forms are significantly different.  "One and twenty three"
can never mean 123.
