It sounds like you have an old single-reed model.  To tell for sure,
each comb will have only one reed plate and one cover plate.  The
underside of each comb will be veneered with a .75" metal plate nailed
to the wood.  Check out Judy Simpson-Smith's bass book which is available
through F&R Farrell.  As for price....well that model of bass is not made
