78rpm, LOUIS ARMSTRONG and His ORCHESTRA, OKEH 8800, "TIGER RAG" and "DINAH". Condition: A visual E-, with light sratches. Plays a solid E!
Please check my other auctions...I plan to list 84 78-RPM records today from the collection of an advanced collector. All will be without reserve. There are sure to be bargains for knowledgeable bidders. No invoices will be sent until all 84 auctions have closed. One auction will close every 5 minutes for 7 straight hours. Please enjoy!!
GRADING: I am not a 78 collector or expert. However, this record was inspected, played and graded by a veteran 78 collector, with every effort being made to be honest and fair. Please remember that record grading is, unavoidably, somewhat subjective…an art, not a science. My policy is: If you are not fully satisfied with the record, as graded and described, you may return it for a full refund, including the cost of shipping. You must be pleased...that's the deal.
UPCOMING SALES: Dear friends, you may expect a similar list of fine 78's once a month, starting on the first Monday of the month. Please enjoy bidding on the rare records offered from this world class collection. Thanks, Mike

IMPORTANT PAYMENT NOTICE: Due to eBay regulations, I am sorry to say that payment is by PayPal only. Sorry, but I am not set up to accept credit cards directly. If you make multiple purchases and are unsure of the amount to pay, PLEASE wait for my email with the total, so you do not overpay. If you do overpay, I will refund the difference. Contact in 3 days/Payment in 7 days. Thank you.
SHIPPING: Shipping will be by insured Priority Mail. Enter your zip code into the shipping calculator at the bottom of the page for the shipping charges, including insurance.
Shipping will be combined for a savings on multiple purchases (wait for invoice for correct amount when making multiple purchases). Please rest assured that I know, from much experience, how to pack 78s. I have shipped thousands of 78s without loss or damage. INSURANCE REQUIRED, see below.
INSURANCE: Insurance is required and at the expense of the buyer. Current Postal Insurance Rates on Priority Mail are as follows:
$1.75 for amounts up to $50, or...
$2.25 for amounts between $51 and $100.
$2.70 for amounts between $101. and $200.
$4.70 for amounts between $201. and $300. (Why it jumps $2.00 at this price I do not know.)
$5.75 for amounts between $301. and $400.
$6.70 for amounts between $401. and $500.
Add $1.00 for each additional $100.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International shipping, via International Priority Air Mail only, at cost, with insurance required. Any item shipped without insurance is done so AT YOUR RISK alone. No international UPS, including Canada.
MEDIA MAIL Some bidders prefer Media Mail, as it is cheaper. I do not, for two reasons: (1) The handling is rougher and the delivery time is often longer. I've managed to sell thousands of 78's without one case of loss or breakage with Priority Mail. (2) When I ship Priority Mail, the Post Office provides the box (No. 7, 12x12x8"). If I ship Media Mail, I must buy a box and materials, at a cost of about $2.00. I must pass along this cost, so the first $2.00 of the savings on postage is lost.
SALES TAX: California Buyers are required to pay Sales Tax (it went up as of April 1, 2009, and is now 8.375%) or provide Resale Card with payment. Thank you.
