The billboard page for my new, www.recordappraiser.com page is up.Well...I have been collecting 78rpm phonorecords (and buying them as well)
It's scope will broaden as I get time to write additional parts of it.
In prep is a segment that will cite the appropriate IRS publications and
brief paragraphs about various confusing aspects of the process.
I plan to discuss when a formal appraisal is required and explain the
oft-confusing self-created works.
I'm interested in knowing what you guys feel belongs there- what other
confusing aspects of the process should I address?
Constructive suggestions welcomed.
about 1974 or so...and read all the "official price guides" as they
given the benefit of that half-vast experience in the field, I STILL can't
statements about the "cash value" of these artifacts that I would consider
accurate..?! I have bought "job lots" of them for anything from $50 on up
rarities,I might note) ranging from 200 up to 2500 records, for anything
$50 to $100. Yet I see auction lists expecting minimum bids of $2 or $3,
and think back fondly to receiving auction lists with minimums of just
over a buck each...!
I have no idea what it has cost me to accumulate my 55,000(+/-) 78's, but
I would guess less that 10 grand total...?!
You're a braver man than *I* am...?!
