Howdy All,
Reg M. sent out an excellent research in his prep letter from one of his readers to which I responded below. Hope you find this info as useful as I did to help...Get Prepared!!!...jpf

Howdy Robert,

I'm responding to your email to Reg that he kindly sent out to us yesterday. Reg always does a great job in getting valuable prep info out to people. Likewise, we strive to do so in our prep group up here in Montana, http://www.bsoscblog.com.

I'm cc'ing this back to Reg as well in the event he may want to send it out to his group emailing.

First off, kudos to you on your fine work in researching BoM metals currency units values! That must have been a heck of a project. Your addressing of units of measure of grain food commodities along with the metals intrigued me because of what we have been working on several years in developing an alternative emergency I.C.E. (Intentional Community Economy) in our BSOSC group. We have a lot of info posted in the Task Force #7 forum on this subject.

We researched the cost of goods and services for decades to millenia, discovering for the most part that those costs varied little throughout history in terms of real money made of precious metals. We noticed a disproportionate bounce in costs in the 1915 values, which of course could have had nothing to do with the implementation of the fed res!

In our monthly meetings we have barter/trade fairs in which we encourage folks not to use dollars, but to use silver and their goods/production in their commerce with each other.

When we developed ICE, it was in three parts: 1) We started building a historical valuation cost of goods/services in silver; 2) We started building our local currency (Bitterroot Bucks) which would be issued on a person's production and or silver backing; and 3) We started building a credit clearing exchange system to assure the Bitterroot Bucks were always redeemable and no one would ever incur a loss in accepting them.

Though we have a long ways to go, it has come along well with the limited amount of time people have to volunteer toward working on our ICE. Two books over the last several years have really inspired us in our efforts, The End of Money And Future of Civilization by Tom Greco and Starving The Monkeys by Tom Baugh. We have established and maintained contact with both these authors, good men who see what is coming.

My question of you is you have taken your work to the point of learning just what the various cost of goods/services may have been in your excellent work on the units of denominations of BOM currency? This would be valuable info for any and all groups that are preparing for coming monetary collapse by having a emergency alternative economic system in place based upon historically accurate valuation system in terms of real money.

Thanks again for sharing your nice work with Reg and subsequently all of us. Please feel free to use anything that may be of help in any of your efforts in this regard that you may find on our site.

Happy Preparedness Trails,

Jim

Subject: Silver comparisons of U.S. Silver with the Book of Mormon Silver monetary systems

Hi Reg,
I did this about a year ago and just thought you might like to see the comparisons I came up with.

Alma Ch 11



Silver Gold


Leah = 1


Shiblum = 2 Leah


Shiblon = 4 Leah


Senum = 8 Leah Senine = 8 Leah


Amnor = 16 Leah Seon = 16 Leah


Ezrom = 32 Leah Shum = 32 Leah


Onti = 56 Leah Limnah = 56 Leah


Onti = 1 Senum + 1 Amnor + 1 Ezrom, or 7 Senum


Limnah = 1 Senine + 1 Seon + 1 Shum, or 7 Senine


Antion (Gold) = 3 Shiblons, or 1 ½ Senum, or 1 ½ Senine



This system is apparently a binary system with the exception of the Onti for Silver and the Limnah for Gold. At first glance it doesn’t make sense. Why would King Mosiah as Prophet, Seer, and Revelator of the people at that time, establish the monetary system as a binary system and then change the last coin value to equal the previous 3 coins. This apparently throws the whole idea out of balance. The binary system is a very simple system of doubling the value of the previous coin.

The Senum and the Senine are the standards for both Silver and Gold correspondingly. These are compared with “either for a measure of barley, and also for a measure of every kind of grain.” Alma 11:7

If we take one half of the U.S. Quarter and make it equal to a Leah we would get something like this:

modified U.S. Silver Dime = 125% of U.S. Silver Dime or ½ Quarter


½ U.S. Silver Quarter = 1 Leah


Quarter U.S. Silver = 2 Leah or 1 Shiblum


U.S. Silver Half Dollar = 4 Leah or 1 Shiblon


1 U.S. Silver Dollar = 8 Leah or 1 Senum (Silver) or 1 Senine (Gold)


2 U.S. Silver Dollars = 16 Leah or 1 Amnor (Silver) or 1 Seon (Gold)


4 U.S. Silver Dollars = 32 Leah or 1 Ezrom (Silver) or 1 Shum (Gold)


7 U.S. Silver Dollars = 1 Onti (Silver) or 1 Limnah (Gold)



Today, 7000 grains of Wheat or Barley is equal to 1 pound (lb.) in the current U.S and International standards of weights and measures (English).

The symbolism of 7000 is found in the Bible and Pearl of Great Price. 6 days of Creation of the world and 1 day of rest. 1 day in the Lord’s time is equal to 1000 years. We get 7000 years for the creation. One grain of Wheat or Barley per year would equal 7000 grains.

One pound of grain is equal to 1 pint in liquid measurement. “A pint is a pound the world around” as the saying goes.
