70 years ago $5.00...........Today it has the buying power of fity cent
1970 in South East Asia $5.00 did buy a carton of smokes,and a case of Bud....Exactly !
In 1970 on Okinawa it bought 4 Fifths of Chevis Regal scotch and I got change back, or it bought 5 fifths of Smirnoff Vodka with change, it would also buy 100 bottles of beer.

It's pretty cool, really...I would hang on to it and pass it on the an aspiring young collector. Might not be worth much more than 5 bucks, but it would be worth something to someone who appreciated who gave it to them.
