Has DB Cooper's fortune been found at last? 'Parachute strap' may reveal where daring criminal buried his ransom cash 46 years after he leaped from a plane and vanished over Pacific Northwest woodland
This post isn't about D. B. Cooper or his caper. It's about paper, fiat currency.
The article approximately compares $200k cash to a wisely converted value, then vs now. It fails to point out that, if you found Cooper's cash today, you don't get to walk into a bank and demand $1.2+ million.
Why not? The cash never went off ledger. What happened?
