If I said £60 the lot plus postage/collection I would be happy

Have you contacted coffeephil or pamfletty yet, SF? This might be more their thing...

£60 is pretty steep for a bunch of fairly run of the mill 78's . . .

I only derived £60 looking on E-Bay and making a quick calculation. I have no idea of value and if someone wants to give me an idea I'd be really grateful. They are just doing nothing and will remain doing so until they go.

A quick look on Discogs, Souvenirs - Frank Sinatra sold for £12 and one up for sale now for £8.00. There's over twenty 78's making them less than £3 each. I don't think it's that bad a price considering there may be a few other gems in the list.

However it's who wants them and what they want to pay.
