Well, I know that when my Mom bought my missionary bible for me, it cost some
C$70.00 and that was in the mid-70s. And by coincidence, the C$ was actually
worth slightly *more* than the US$ at the time. That was an awful lot of money
for a single mom, but she was so proud -- I was the first person in her family
(she's a convert) to go on a mission, and she loved missionaries, always having
them over for dinner, etc. It was the highlight of her life at that time when I
went (how's that for motivation?!)
