Wouldn't you have to pay in 1917 dollars ? : >)

On the gold standard, gold was $20 per troy ounce in 1917. Today it was $1179.00 rounding off for easy figuring, say 1200 per ounce, you'd have to pay $ 120.00 in today's money. I'll still take a pair !!

$2.00 in 1917 is equivalent to $40.78 in today's dollars according to the dollar times website. Here is a link, fun to calculate differences in dollar value over the past decades.
