What is the average increase in home insurance if the house has knob and tube wiring?

It seems many companies do not offer insurance if there is knob and tube wiring in place, but I know there are some out there. We are in MA.
We are looking to purchase a home built in 1907, and there is some knob and tube, but also a lot of newer wiring that has been done in the last year or so.
Really just trying to get a ballpark figure for how much more insurance may cost with the older wiring. Not sure we will have the option to remove it before we buy the house.
