Cost of Conn Alto Saxophone in 1971

I am a writer, and I've been trying to do research on what the cost of a Conn Alto Saxophone would have been in 1971. I just need an approximate cost--no need to be specific about models. Also, if you don't have the 1971 cost, but know of the price they would have sold for anytime between 1968 and 1973, that would help. Thank you!

      My used Conn Tenor (student line) cost $365 in 1973. Does that help?

          No, Sean, wasn't me. But sounds like a fun gig!
