Money in the Old West: Coins of America's Dramatic 1840s-1870s
Many people don't even know what "Old West" coins even looked like. Believe it or not cash and exchange was more sophisticated then than it gets credit for.

Being a former Californian, prices and wages were much higher in California during the 1850s.
Nowadays, wages there seem to be the same as any other state I'm in but the cost of living is ridiculous. If I traded my house in Arizona for an apartment in LA, I'd be packing my family into a 1-bedroom cigar box. I try to stay away from the place.
