They were 7/6 when I were a lad!  (37.5 Pence in today's terms, for the youngsters ...)

NOTE:- They were a pure b.gg.r on yer teeth if you miss hit the strummer!

I'd guess about £15 as well?

Bob.




Some good guessing and £15 is probably around the mark of what I would have expected to pay ....... however it cost me the princely sum of £5  ;D

Bargain when you think of what a 5 spot can buy you these days !! or should that be "can't" buy you these days lol  ;D
