Well,would you be able to appraise a collection like mine,that covers everything from pre-1910 classical,to 1990s punk? Would you be able to tell me what a vinyl pressing of Nimrod by Green Day,or Pre-BS Mummies 45s are worth ? I have four different pressings of the "Jailhouse Rock" EP.including one from 1961,with the movie poster sleeve,from Spain,and a 60s Australian "gold record" label pressing.Would you know the difference ? Would you know what a "horseback cover" French Beatles is ? Would you be able to tell me what my Stan Freberg radio commercials,and unissued Mehuin/Tippett acetate is worth ? I have dozens of 60s punk,surf,and soul 45s,that have never appeared on compilations,would you appraise these properly ? Do you know what "The Outcast" by The Mighty Sparrow,or 1930s Telefunken 78 sets by Willem Mengelberg sell for on eBay?

Just asking.

The billboard page for my new, page is up.

It's scope will broaden as I get time  to write additional parts of it.  

In prep is a segment that will cite the appropriate IRS publications and brief paragraphs about various confusing aspects of the process.  

I plan to discuss when a formal appraisal is required and explain the oft-confusing self-created works.  

I'm interested in knowing what you guys feel belongs there- what other confusing aspects of the process should I address?

Constructive suggestions welcomed.
