All:

I thought that the $1.08 servicing charge listed on the box (including postage) was funny… until, I did a comparative dollar value lookup. It’s not funny anymore.

Current data is only available till 2013. In 2013, the relative worth of $1.08 from 1900 is:

$138.00 using the unskilled wage
$220.00 using the Production Worker Compensation
$210.00 using the nominal GDP per capita
$874.00 using the relative share of GDP 😮

Thanks!
Tom
