Series Is Presented Here As Two Variables--(1)--Original Data, 1894-1947 (2)--Original Data, 1947-1958. Prices Are As Of First Tuesday Each Month (See Bls Bulletins Through 1916) Through 1917. Beginning In 1918, The Average Of Weekly Quotations Is Given. Prices Are For "Box Annealed, Cold-Rolled, U.S. Standard, No.27." Quarterly Figures Are Averages Of The Respective Months. Beginning In 1917, Prices Were Computed To 1 Additional Place By Multiplying The 1913 Price Of $0.0219 And The 1913 Base Relatives.
