Whether a nominal consideration is sufficient to support a promise not to revoke an offer, is a question upon which there is the same difference of opinion as in the case of the question of the general sufficiency of nominal considerations. In some jurisdictions it is held that a nominal consideration,1 such as one dollar,2 or "a valuable consideration, "3 is insufficient. In other jurisdictions an offer upon a nominal consideration,4 such as one dollar,5 is upon sufficient consideration, and is irrevocable.
