Exactly! These historical prices are all relative to the prices today. How many people who were of NFA age 15 years ago and did want to purchase 90%+ Colt TSMG's for $5K or less, but didn't? It looked like, and was, a lot of money then, as it still does today. But by comparison to the $30K + contemporary figure, in hindsight the $5K looks cheap. I'm not sure of any item that has had its price frozen in time since hitting the market except for technology gadgets that have actually gotten cheaper.
The 1927 A1 Deluxe hasn't appreciated significantly from it's 1967 price of $345.00 to the current $500 to $750 NIB asking price as seen on gunboards today.
