My dad passed away and left behind some vinyl records, approximately 400, mainly classical recordings from ca 1950 and onward. As I, no matter how horriffic that may sound to most of you, have personally ditched vinyl and now live with my own family in not unlimited space, I need to get rid of them. Question is how and where. There exists an incomplete inventory of about half of them whcih my father started in excel - whether his structuring of the information was well advised is beyond me). I guess my question is how should they be described to evaluate possible monetary value?
What markets do I advertise on (they are currently in Sweden)? Do all records need to be inventoried and if so, with which data? Or is a representative subset for extrapolation sufficient ? Does the code MMS 138 mean anything to anyone and if so, is the metadata on album name, piece, composer, conductor and so on important? Do they need to be photographed, and if so, just cover or record? How does one evaluate and describe condition?
Any and all information or pointer to where I should direct my lazy self for further study would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance,
