Benz MC Silver 2mV was nice on a friend's system I was listening to recently. Don't know the real street price though.

These days I'm rather partial to modern production SPUs and high mass arms on antique tables like the TD124.

I think a low end Nagaoka like the MP100, or Denon DL-160 would run circles around most of these vintage MM cartridges, so probably would something like the Grado Blue 1. The old Pickering, Stanton, and Empire cartridges IMVVLE just don't fare that well compared to good modern cartridges.
I wonder if my 82 yro ears would even hear the difference. I still enjoy listening to recorded music and can appreciate good reproduction.
