Auction Description


Artist: Elvis Presley

Title: Heartbreak Hotel b/w I Was the One

Label/Number: RCA 47-6420 (M)

Record condition: EX

Notes: The labels are in nice condition with no flaws of note. The vinyl is bright and glossy with one light surface scratch on the A Side (likely from a needle slide) that leads me to grade it down to a conservative EX. The B Side shows no signs of wear.

Grading: Grading is usually only visual for VG+ or better items, although if time allows I may play to verify the quality of a pressing or just to hear the music. VG items are usually only listed if they are fairly hard-to-find items and are always play graded. Regardless of the grade, if I do play the LP, I note the results in the item description. I use Goldmine standards with Ebay's EX grade added for items NOT QUITE up to NM; but please read the notes above as I try to note anything that might influence the grading one way or another. I try to be conservative and grade as though I were buying the record and hope my feedback speaks well for my grading. Mono (M) or Stereo (S) is noted after catalog number. Don't hesitate to e-mail questions.   

Mailing and costs: Domestic shipping is via USPS, first class mail, with delivery confirmation. I ship in cardboard mailers made specifically for records with additional cardboard pads for added protection. Shipping and handling charges are a flat $4.00 for the first record and $1.00 per additional.

Overseas shipping on purchases under $100.00 may be sent by USPS First Class Mail International but I will upgrade at the buyer's request. Orders for more than $100.00 will need to be by Priority Mail International. This provides added protection for both the buyer and for me. The price will be the actual shipping costs plus $1.50 for the mailer and pads noted above. I know that customs charges are problematic but, sorry to say, I cannot lower the value on the customs form below the purchase price. I'm always happy to combine shipping costs for multiple purchases.
