I have had Erie 50 and 53’s. Not too sure what
an Erie 51s should look like. Got this from Jacks
Website and asked but no answer there.
Anyone here have one or seen one?
Thanks

Seen those in person...
But by the brochure you restored a model 51S not a cash recorder model 50.

You know, I always look at those old brochures and sales ads from years ago and marvel at the prices. When I looked at this it got me to thinking about inflation and todays prices and what that pump would cost if sold now. So I googled inflation change and there is a website that has a calculator to put in a price from 1913-2019 and it converts it to todays value of the item from back then. According to that calculator, $210 would now be $3942.60. A modern gas pump today costs at least ten times that. I suppose if an exact duplicate of the pump were made today in volume with todays technology it might be able to go to market for $4000 but it would be a very inefficient pump by todays standards without digital readouts, credit card swipers, and other modern inhancements. That being said, I still have a hard time believing that something that intricate and well built could be sold today for anywhere close to $4000. Somewhere along the line we have became a society of acceptance, meaning that we will just pony up whatever some company says the price of an item is, not that it doesn't cost a fortune to produce goods nowadays. I really don't know the point of this post other than pointing out my opinion that cool stuff nowadays is just not hardly worth the cost we have to pay for it. And even worse, the stuff we do have to pay through the nose for just really doesn't seem to be that cool. Wow, I guess I am really getting old and cynical.....GB
