Since 1954 -- when fed funds data first started -- the average spread between funds and the 10 year t bond
has been 0.8%. That does include the periods of a steeply negative curve.

What is unusual is not where the yield curve is now.
Rather, it is where it was a year ago when it was over 4% -- except for a few months in 1989 that was an all time high.
