Hi Prozies,
I need to convert DM 107,000 into dollars - at the average exchange rate for 1991.
Does anyone know where I can obtain information on average exchange rates for that year?
Thanks,
Rebecca

It works! Mar 1, 2004

Great site.
The average rate is indicated at 1.66052 - DEM 107,000 thus translates into USD 64,437.65.

Hi Rebecca,

You can convert the amount @ http://www.oanda.com/convert/fxhistory, searching for the historical DEM-USD exchange rate for the whole year of 1991 (enter starting date 1 Jan 1991, closing date 31 Dec 1991). This will give you a table listing exchange rates for the individual days of the year, as well as an average (DEM1.00=USDX.XX). You can then proceed to calculating your specific amount.

Best,
Steffen

Thank you! Great sites!
Golfers everywhere will be delighted when they learn their clubs were a real steal as compared to the world's most expensive club, bought at auction in 1991 for $64,437 or DM 107,000!!!
