Hmm... If I had five silver dollars, from that period, they'd be worth about $30 a piece, or $150.00 in today's money. If I had a Quarter Gold Eagle, it would be worth about $500, in today's money.
Larry, I say let's split the difference and let's make it $254 and change [ The mean of (112+150+500)/3 ]
