I am helping my brother with custody of his Grandaughter..I had to make a payout this morning on a tooth. The last tooth I got paid for was when Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon, and the rate then was 0.50 cents.
What are kids getting for a tooth these days?

Depends on what tooth it is...

molars are usually 2 unless they have a filling then its 1
first tooth is usually 5 this only happens once.

all other teeth usually fall in the 1 dollar range.

or you can stock up on 50 cent pieces or susan b's then kids usually hold on to those instead of spending them.

A buck a tooth at our house. Just make sure it's a decent dollar. My daughter got one that was a little rough and after that whenever someone asked what she got for her missing tooth, the answer was "I got a torn dollar."

I remember hearing that kids were getting a few bucks these days for a tooth, all I had on me was a 5 and a single, so I left the 5'er

I would have been looking for dad's pliers at that rate.

Rats, another get rich quick scheme foiled. I was planning my retirement and everything.

Mark, love the avatar. "Your arms off." "No it isn't." "well what's that?" "I've had worse"

BIGGER THE TOOTH THE BIGGER THE PAYOFF. $2.00 FOR SMALL TOOTH AND $5.00 FOR A MOLAR OR FRONT TOOTH. I REMEMBER WHEN A QUARTER MADE ME SMILE.

We couldn't decide on $1 or $5

so we went with $3. She was happy to be holding 3 singles plus a special note from the tooth fairy to keep up the good work on the brushing!

$5 a tooth here too. I tell the kids the tooth fairy takes the teeth, files them down, polishes them and makes white piano keys out of them
