Mid 70's Raleigh Sprite

I threw out my seat post by mistake, what would the size be on this bike?

You could take it to your local bike shop & have them measure the opening. I have an early 70s Raleigh SuperCourse but I hesitate to measure my seat tube diameter because the 531 tubes are likely a different seat tube diameter from the Sprite. Don
