I bought a Winchester 72A, brand new, in the summer of 1959. Bolt action, tube feed, 15+1 LR, 18+1 L, & 21+1 Short.
I still have it and it is mounted with a Weaver 6X scope. I can't remember the exact price that I paid for it back then, but to be sure, it was less that $30.00. Took me a year of working a dairy farm job to save the money.
