- (obsolete) Someone who collected dog faeces for sale to tanneries (which used it as a siccative for bookbinding leather). Undertaken by old women in Britain in the 18th century. (Reference: Robert Hughes, The Fatal Shore, 1987, paperback 1996 →ISBN chapter 1 page 21.)
- Used other than with a figurative or idiomatic meaning: see pure, finder.
- 2002: As one commentator has noted, although a pure finder may "induce the purchase or sale of" a security within the meaning of Section 15(a)(1), he or she is not normally a "broker" because he or she effects no transactions. — Howard S. Meyers, Finder's fee agreements: Potential pitfalls and considerations, The Attorney-CPA, July 2002
