I have the Berlin books. I can't remember, but it might have been around the 3 fiddy mark. A little pricy for what was clearly a bid that was on a strict budget.

The use of an old East German government building as the bid headquarters to save on proper office space. The cheapness of the bid file in its binder format (which IMO could have been more condensed). Things like these really showed how cheap the bid was.
