Good afternoon fellows,
Help me here just a little bit. How did they come up with a value of $180,000.00 for this room full of ginseng? It looks like almost a million and a half worth at 2013 value. How have I missed this?

Hugh


Actually the value was $180,000.00 which if you divide 190 into comes out to $947 a pound which is about what it went for last year in WV.

At their estimated value it would be $947+ dollars a pound. Take note of that and don't sell less West Virginia diggers.
If the local Authorities can get that price why should the LEGAL diggers get less?Yeah I am all for getting the most for your Time and effort. AS long as its legal.


I would bet that they are using last years price to do the estimate.

Thanks Carl,
You can tell I am tired. I can't even multiply this morning. That's what happens when you get to be 100. :laugh:
