    Question Anyone Know Anything RE: Value of 78 RPM Collectibles?

    I'm in the process of unpacking stuff from my mom's house after she passed away a couple years ago.

    Among the seemingly countless mother's day cards and letters from my brother and I that she squirreled away from the 70's onward, there are 5 pre-WWII 78 RPM records. I'm debating whether or not to put them on eBay, but I'm sort of inclined to keep them.

    I've been poking around online this evening and the prices seem to vary widely for the ones I can find.

    Does anyone collect these and/or have any inkling as to the value of the following?

    VICTOR 17474-A/B
    "SILVER THREADS AMONG THE GOLD" ELSIE BARKER
    "WHEN YOU AND I WERE YOUNG, MAGGIE" CHAS. W. HARRISON

    RCA VICTOR 20-3321-A/B
    "POWDER YOUR FACE WITH SUNSHINE" SAMMY KAYE
    "CARELESS HANDS" SAMMY KAYE

    COLUMBIA 13232-D BLIND WILLIE JOHNSON
    "IF I HAD MY WAY I'D TEAR THAT BUILDING DOWN"
    "MOTHER'S CHILDREN HAVE A HARD TIME"

    OKEH 8159-A/B SIPPIE WALLACE
    "CAN ANYONE TAKE SWEET MAMA'S PLACE"
    "STRANGERS BLUES"

    This is an interesting one -

    LIBRARY OF CONGRESS TALKING BOOK AFB 65-3
    "INSTRUCTIONS FOR TALKING BOOK USERS"
    THE LABEL ON THE OTHER SIDE IS IN BRAILLE"

    Thanks!

    The blind willie and the braille may be of interest to a collector for a few $$ each...
    the rest..is common

    I might be interested in all but the instructions 78. I own a "Victrola" and a collection of 78s.
