It would be interesting to know how much $75.00 in 1906 dollars represents today. Might it be a 100 fold increase?

"What cost $75 in 1906 would cost $1539.27 in 2005", according to the "Inflation Calculator" on the web.

Is that all? Only $1539.27?
Well if it isn't inflation there is a whole lot of appreciation from $75 to almost 3 million.
