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?
