    In Leviticus 27:1-8,this is the breakdown:

    Men aged between 20-60 = 50 shekels of silver.
    Women of the same age bracket = 30
    Boys between 5-20 is valued at 20.
    Girls of the same age range = 10
    Boys 1 month to 5 years = 5
    Girls of the same age = 3
    Men over sixty = 15
    Women over sixty =10

    It's not fair.When I turn 61 (years from now) 59 year-old women will be worth twice as much as me!

    Maybe it means that men over 60 are priceless.

    (BTW, I turn 65 in May!)
