How Much Did The Meoras Hamachpeila Cost ?

Based on silver @$17.00 per oz.
Avraham Avinu paid for the Mearas Hamachpeila
$263,842.00  or  $10,193,897.00

The Gemoro in Bechoros 50a says that the
Shekelim Avraham gave to Efron were Kantarin.
 (400 Kantarin)
The Sefer Midos Veshiurei Torah claims,
1 Kantor = 42.5 Kg.
1 Kantor = 42,5 kg. =. X 400 = 17,000 kg.
1kg. = 35.273 oz.
17,000 x 35.273 oz. = 599,641 oz.
599,641 x $17.00* =  $ 10,193,897.00

According to the Torah Temima a Kantor (Cent)
is   (multiply by a 100) x100
assuming a Shekel = 11grm. X100 = 1100 grm (1.1 kg.)
1.1 x400 = 440

440x 35.273 = 15,520.12 x  $17.00*
=$263,842 .00

*1oz. silver = $17.00
