Just a dollar

IMG_20150202_091805795-1A while back, I wrote about how economical old fishing and hunting licenses were, plus how complicated and expensive they have become under today’s system since our government has become so smart and efficient.

I got the photo above from one of our readers and thought you’d like to see it. It’s from David Roach and it is a photo of a fishing license issued to his grandfather, Dave Roach, back in 1932. Gee, that’s even before my fishing buddy George was born.  It’s a Class F license. I assume the “F” is for Fishing! If you read the fine print, it covers pretty much any kind of fishing anywhere in the state. Pretty cool. We tried to find out more about it, and him, but that’s all we’ve got. it’s still pretty interesting!  And yes, it was just a dollar!

One thought on “Just a dollar

  1. I just looked up the value of $1.00 in 1932 vs. 2015. Today, that same dollar would be worth $16.03.
