Hello everybody!

I would like you to translate the idiom 'thin as a dime' into Spanish.
I've seen it isolated, so I've got no context to help.

Thank you in advance!

    as thin as a rake

    "Tan delgado como un rastrillo"??? si fuera ésta una frase común en español, sí sería su equivalente.

    Saludos,

    'As thin as a rake' is an idiom I've learned in my English Vocabulary book, meaning the same, very thin.

    Saludos!
