Original cost?

I have now accumulated an H3 1970 140 tractor with a 54" blade, a #8" mower deck, a #33 tiller and a 3 point hitch all for $900 in less than 2 months.

I was wondering what was the original purchase price of these items. Any idea what they might have cost back in '70.

Someone told me that the later model 4xx series,425,445,455 tractors had durability upgrades such as harder gears and improvements used in the later K92's.

Does anyone know if there is any truth to this?
I checked JD parts and found this although it may be difficult to make out the way it is displayed:
