How much would 15 shillings in 1840 be in US dollars today?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
The exchange rate was about $4.90=£1, and there were 20 shillings to a pound.
That means that one shilling was worth $.245, so 15 of them were just over $3.67.
Edit because I missed the "today" part: $3.67 in 1840 would be the equivalent of $77.93 today.
