How can you tell if an old vinyl record is a first pressing?
Well on the spine or the back of the record there should be a number letter combination, such as SMAL 5463. www.discogs.com is a good website to find out if its an original or not. Type the code into the search box in the top left corner of the page, go to the drop down menu to the left of the search box and choose catalog # and press search. Sometimes more than one entry will come up and you have to look at each one. Make sure it says its an LP, or EP or whatever your record is. Also make sure the label on the record matches the description given on the website. For example it may say a record is from 1964 and has a black label, while the same record could be a reissue from 1976 and have a red label. Hope that helped!

Many people believe the older an item ifintact and not damaged, then the more valuable which is true in some items, but there will come a time when absolutely no one wil…l want those items, for example in about 20 years all vinyl and record players could be gone, there for they would have no use for them, however people do collect them as decorations but in my personal opinion that is going out of style now, id sell up most of them now, but keep the most popular and best conditioned ones just in case. So the answer is Yes sell them now but keep one or two for the future to see if you could prove me wrong.
If it is big, round, and black and from the 50's through the 70's it is generally vinyl. Vinyl records came in two main sizes. A 12in record was called an LP for Long Player… and, usually, had several songs on it. there were songs on both sides. It revolved at 33 1/3 rpm. A 7in record was called a single though there were two songs on it, one on each side, and revolved at 45 rpm. There were exceptions to this such as a 10in single and an EP which stood for extended play and usually had two songs on each side. They were generally black but special promotional versions could be made in any colour.

You should go to a music store. Preferably, one where they sell old records. They could be the best ones to give you an estimate on the value. Another option is t…o put your record on Ebay. It will sell for high prices on there, or you could just talk to some people who have put their item on there. Music Price Guide is a good place to both auction your records and see what they're worth. On Amazon there's a book titled the Goldmine Record Album Price Guide.
The first Vinyl LP, which was released by Columbia Records in 1948, is accepted as being a recording of Nathan Milstein, a classical violinist, playing Felix Mendelssohn's Con…certo No. 2 in E Minor, conducted by Bruno Walter with the New York Philharmonic. It was recorded three years earlier, on March 16, 1945 at Carnegie Hall in New York. The item number is ML 4001.
How can you tell if your unopened moody Blue Elvis Presley vinyl record is on blue or black vinyl without opening it and lowering the resale value?
There is no way to discern if the album itself is on blue or black vinyl without opening it up. However, all records (including this one) will be worth allot IF it remains "un…played" (i.e. in pristine condition and unplayed). If you look closely at any 45 or 33 there is a "black band" that is NOT a "music track" and is located closest to the label of the record. There you will find a series of numbers and letters. This series of numbers, along with the actual condition record and its jacket, will determine the value of the record. Needless to say, if your album is on blue vinyl and was produced in 1977 you have a valuable record.
Vinyl records from the 1920s and 1930s are in a down market right now. With the exception of jazz and a few obscure areas (like square dancing), you'd be lucky to get a …dollar or two for each record.
It depends on what it is, and more importantly what condition it is in. You will need to send time researching each title to get an idea of how much various copies might be wo…rth.
That is difficult to answer because it usually varies compared to the guide book values. The link below will take you to a series of free-to-read articles and videos for those… new to collecting vinyl records. There is good info on the record (internet) market, evaluating condition and grading your records. That is the most important thing collectors look for, condition.
Trying to find out the worth of your vinyl records can be a tedious task. There are quite a few factors to consider when determining the value of your vinyl record colle…ction such as: The Release Date The Condition of the Vinyl Record Limited Release/Discontinued Sealed or not Rare or Bizarre Artwork Promotional Vinyl Records If you are a beginner, the easiest way to grade the value of your vinyl records is to pick up a copy of the Vinyl Records Price Guide, or to find a local dealer to appraise the record in person.
Kind of like baseball cards, it depends on what you have -and- what condition its in. Finding the value of each record requires time, research and effort. There are common one…s and rare ones. And condition is everything to a collector willing to spend money on them.

Many of the records are valued in price close to $25 each. The amount will vary depending upon the condition of the records.
The master record is cut on a machine a little bit like like a record player, only the music is fed TO the cutting needle and imprints the groove with ridges and bumps a…s it cuts. the needle moves across the record at a pre- determined rate.The coil of swarth that comes off the needle is sucked up by a tiny vacuum cleaner to stop it from piling up.The master is duplicated by a moulding process.
Vinyl records are discs with a single groove on each side. The groove has undulations which are picked up by a stylus (needle in crude terms) and a transducer (cartridge) …into which the stylus is inserted. The disc rotates at a constant speed and the stylus rides the groove. The signal generated by the cartridge in amplified many thousands of times and is reproduced by loudspeakers. Vinyl is the material which replaced the earlier shellac and even earlier wax as "unbreakable" records.
