It's not in the 271K ballpark because the truly wealthy would have paid taxes at about the 25% rate, which was the cap. gains tax rate in the 1950's. Just as Romney paid his taxes at just under the current 15% cap. gains rate last year, the truly wealthy in the 1950's would have paid at close to the cap. gains rate at that time, as well.
