I have no real idea of the cost of things in the US in the 1860's ... but I'd say Lincoln would have known that Willie would be able to get quite an amount of candy for five cents. For a quarter, I'm guessing that he'd be able to get quite an armload. And Lincoln, the shopkeeper, knew that of course.

Not only a great President but a great parent. Indulgent when he wanted to be, but aware of when his son was 'trying it on'.
Would that help?
What cost $0.25 in 1860 would cost $6.93 in 2017.
Also, if you were to buy exactly the same products in 2017 and 1860, they would cost you $0.25 and $0.01 respectively.
