    Inflation ?????????????
    From: Henry Halboth
    Date: 2005 Oct 11, 21:56 -0400

    Some might find the following, taken from the 1943 edition of Mixter, of
    passing interest ...
    
    "Prices of new micrometer sextants available in New York in 1940 are from
    $150 to $250."
    
    "New vernier sextants cost from $90 to $125 ..............."
    
    "........... good second hand instruments are available for about $60."
    
    But then again, in those days I had a good and resposible job paying $100
    per month for 24 hours per day x 7 days per week x 30/1 days per month -
    no overtime, but they did feed and bunk me. Just think, after a few
    months at sea I could buy the best sextant on the market, with a couple
    of bucks left over for a beer or two. Someday my heirs are going to get
    fat selling off the sextants I did buy.
