The Hawaii Five-O $100,000 Nickel Episode Was On Last Friday...so...
The episode originally aired in 1973...therefore, adjusted for inflation...that would be a $700,000 1913 Liberty Head nickel today...so how does track with actual recent auction values?
But I also found the closing credits interesting in that two coin investment entities were thanked:
United National Coin Corp. in Beverly Hills and World Wide Coin Investments Ltd. in Atlanta...I thought that was a pretty advanced investment concept for nearly 50 years ago...when even vanilla mutual funds didn't even exist yet!
I wonder if either of these firms became a part of a firm that we'd know today?
