$7,200,000 back in 1867. This would be worth over $100,000,000 in terms of today's nearly worthless money, but is still a bargain by anybody's valuation.

The Wikipedia article gives some possibly true, and fascinating background on the purchase transaction, including why it was even done at all by the Russians, who approached US with the deal!
