I just found a large supply of records from the 30's, 40's, and 50's. Big find?

    Did I just have a major archeological find?

    My Dad, a musician, has been in many bands, and when I feel like it, I’ll make a pilgrimage down the stairs and see what kind of music stuff I can find in the basement.

    Over the past year, I’ve found a few different processors, lots of good cables—XLR, ¼,RCA and others, and other good stuff.

    Well, yesterday night I decided to make another “pilgrimage”.

    What I found was very astonishing!

    I found about 10 old records from some time around the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, all but a few in pristine conditions and kept in a small folder.

    Here’s the story-

    My Grandfather was a construction worker and when cleaning out an old house that just happened belong to a composer, he found a lot of records.

    And somehow now, they’re in my possession.

    Dad has given them to me.

    Knowing that it’s possible that this could be an audiophile’s dream, I’m asking whoever would know: How much cash could I get for selling these.

    The records are:

    A few LP’s in German.

    1812 overture

    IL Barbiere Di Sivicula

    Mrs. Rastus Johnson at the Wedding

    Second Hungarian Rhapsody

    Polonaise in A-flat

    The Best of Louis Armstrong

    La Danza

    Anyone have any idea if these are worth anything?

    Really varies

    Condition rariety...and most of all demand

    Some of them look fairly comm (best of's always sell a lot and are not worth a lot ..generally)

    classical depends o lot on the performance and how many are around

    go to ebay and search for them

    Goldmine maagaizine has a lot of ads...look for the titles

    many books have been published on record prices

    Amoeba records have a web site and they buy records

    email them with the titles and condition of each
