J Cutan Genito-Urin Dis.June 1895;13:266-267.First, the good news: In 1895 £1 sterling equaled $5; in 1995 it takes only $1.50 to buy £1 British.Next, the not-so-good news: Although 100 years ago $1 was worth 4 German marks, in 1995 $1 is only worth 1.5 deutsche marks. Still, in 1895 $1 was worth only 5 Italian lire, and nowadays $1 will get you more than 1600 lire!Now, the bad news: $1 in 1895 would be worth 18 cents today.
