I would guess around $10 each? 20-some years ago, I used to buy blues 78's
from an auction list that specialized in c&w stuff...but also included 100 
or so
blues records. I noticed I could never buy (for my $2-$4 bids) well-known
blues artists like Waters (although I have acquired some of his 78'ss 
other sources!). Currently I own 500-600 blues 78's...including a couple of
(poor shape) Blind Lemon Jefferson discs...!
