Re: [Harp-L] Post St. Paddy's thoughts- "back when I was learning to play, a Marine cost ...?"

In late 1968 and 1969 I paid (in Canadian money):

$3.25 for a Hohner Blues Harp in C

$10.00 for a Koch 980 (tuned like a diatonic but with a chromatic slide)

$15.00 for a Hohner 270 12-hole chromatic

$20.00 for a Hohner 280 16-hole chromatic.

I don't know what Mrs. Claus paid for the Marine Band in A that appeared 
in my Christmas stocking. I assume she had distributorship deal with 
Hohner, because the harp said "Made in Germany," not "North Pole."

Does any one remember what they paid for their first harmonica?  Can you beat $ .50 cents?
