High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Spiv is a British word for a particular kind of petty criminal, who deals in stolen or black market goods of questionable authenticity, especially a slickly-dressed man offering goods at bargain prices. The goods are generally not what they seem or have been obtained illegally. It was particularly used during the Second World War and in the Post-War rationing period for black-market dealers. According to Eric Partridge the word was originally race-course slang, but had become widely accepted by 1950. It appeared in a paperback crime novel in 1934. The Oxford English Dictionary suggests that "Spiv" was the nick-name of Henry Bagster, a small-time crook in the 1900s who was frequently arrested for illegal street trading and confidence tricks, and he may be the archetype. Spiv may come from spiffy meaning smartly dressed, or from spiff, being a bonus for salespeople (especially drapers but later car salesmen etc) for managing to sell excess or out of fashion stock. The seller might offer a discount, by splitting his commission with the customer. A seller of stolen goods could give this explanation for a bargain price.
