Barney and Rollin could not have picked up $2 million worth of platinum. Platinum, in 1967 was approximately $160 per troy oz. $2 million worth of platinum would weigh 857 pounds. However, the volume would be only about .64 cubic feet as a cubic foot of platinum is 1340 pounds. This would be a cube about 7.4 inches per side. See more
