1834 "Thaler", a German Silver Coin.

Used for 400 years, this coin is a one "Thaler" coin and = to 30 Silver "Groschen" (
Sgr. means silbergroschen or silver penny).
In 1834 one day's farm labor was paid 1 1/2 Silvergr.
A farm laborer earned 450 Silvergr. or 15 Thaler a year.
A simple farm hand would earn 9 Thaler a year.
A boy 5 Thaler a year.
A servant 3 Thaler a year.
Johann Peter would have carried a pouch or tin box of these as he left Germany.
Johann's Passport shows "15 Sgr" or 1/2 a "Thaler" for the "tax stamp".
And, "20 Sgr" for "passage permission".
Thus, his 35 Sgr fees represented about 24 work days or 4 weeks of work.
