PACKING: I pack really well. I 'sandwich' the record/s between two thick pieces of cardboard, surround it with packing - scrunched up newspaper and/or bubble-wrap/polystyrene chips - and put it in a stout cardboard box. I have been sending records all over the world to regular collectors and dealers. Over many years of posting, I have never had a breakage.
POSTAGE: I am happy to combine records to cut down the cost of postage. It is impossible to pack 78s securely for £4, as suggested by e-bay. So please note that sending one 78 to the UK is £5, with two for £5.50 and 50p for each extra. Continental Europe : First 78 £6.00, then £1 for each extra. Rest of world - please contact, but airmail is at least £12 for first, reducing per extra
CONDITION / GRADING : M = Mint, New. Ex = Excellent - played but few marks and they still sound great. VG = Very good, played many times, with scuff/wear and a little surface noise, but not excessive. + and - marks give clearer gradings. Please note that I grade by sound. A 78 can look quite beat up but still play Ex- Labels are clean unless stated otherwise or as in photos.
WINNERS : Please send no payment until you hear from me with the total cost. Cheques/postal orders preferred from UK buyers but Pay-pal OK for Europe and rest of world.
