I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

This clue might be a double definition.

'price' is the first definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I can't see how they can define each other.

'tobacco?' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

'of' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for quid that I've seen before include "Pound - lump of chewing tobacco", "Bit of greens", "100p (slang)", "Pound (informal)", "Pound (colloq.)".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
