    type the name of lp in ebay and check on completed see how much they sell for then you can work out which are worth less and which ones are worth selling

    sign in to ebay or if you havent one sign up only takes a few mins and then when you search for a item on the left it will say completed items click on that and then you will see ones that are in green are the onces that sold ones that are red are either people trying to be greedy and they havent sold or the item isnt worth anything and they dont sell

    I add details then save them in eBay UK, then check once a week

    In general they are just sentimental value
    However some items are of real interest to the right people

    I too found some Beetles stuff when clearing out a relatives flat, but they had no value
    We lumped them together and sold them in a single lot

    The best way to search is from the catalogue number (not the barcode)

    The major issue is postage and guaranteeing they will arrive in perfect condition
    Hence why I did mine as buyer collect or delivery only

    I have some of my own EP from rare dance labels, but I know what those are worth...
    and they are only from the late 1980s and early 1990s

    Depends on what they are really. What the quality is, condition of disc, condition of cover, which generation pressing etc. Additionally it also depends if they are a test pressing or promo copy and if there are any errors on the disc/cover. For example, many years ago a Gary Numan disc was distributed but pulled within 2 hrs of going on sale due to contractual issues. Hence it is quite rare. It has aslo been known where discs have been released with the wrong label and has differed from the actual track on the disc. Largely though it depends on how collectable the artists is. There used to be a very good magazine out called Record Collector. I believe they do have a website.

    I may have stumbled on something, i could be wrong. Father in law gave me a Beatles Abbey Road 1969 LP with a misaligned apple on reverse of cover. Now doing a bit reasearch this seems could be worth a few quid, mines just like this, what do you think i should do?

    Keep it, it can only increase in value unless a couple of hundred more suddenly turn up.
