Original cost of a model 1892 back in 1895?
I have my great-grandpa's 1892 24" octagon 44-40 which was bought new by him in 1895, probably through the Sears catalog. I got to wondering what the original cost would have been for that rifle in 1895 in 1895 dollars. I'm sure it equaled many days worth of wages. I tried the all-knowing internet, but have drawn a blank as to the cost in 1895? Anybody have a clue?
