Value is often determined by the individual. It was worth it to you. Personally I wouldn't have paid that much. Roots showing over 35 years of age are pretty scarce and are worthy of a premium. This is where the individuals own sense of value comes into play. Last Fall prices topped out at about $700 for mixed lots of wild ginseng (roots of various ages ranging from 5 years on up). Your root weighed about 1 and 3/4 ounce. If you do the math you could get 2 ounces of average wild root for about $100. Now don't get me wrong the root you have described is a lot better than average. I just don't believe that I personally would have given that much for it, but if you got it for personal consumption then enjoy every bit of it. I truly believe that those old roots have stuff in them that is very good for you.:)

p.s. Most folks that have trouble posting pics on this site find that if they can resize their pics to a smaller pixel count that they can then get them to upload.
