Item Description

Beatles Misery; Taste Of Honey b/w Ask Me Why; Anna (Vee-Jay)

All 14 of the Beatles 45s we are auctioning this week are definitive originals in high condition that were sourced from the estate of longtime radio DJ Walt "Big T" Turner. Turner worked as music director at WING in Dayton, OH in 1964, where many of these 45s crossed his desk. He also worked for WSAI in Cincinnati (arriving by early 1965), moved from WSAI to KIMN in Denver in early 1970, and finally purchased KDEX in Dexter, MO in the early 1970s.

Grading Scale

Sealed Jacket sealed shut in shrink wrap; disc sold ungraded or "as is".
NM Appears unplayed and will bear no marks, sleeve scuffs, or scratches. We seldom use this grade.
VG++ May have one or two visible imperfections (i.e. sleeve scuffs, faint scratches, or other superficial marks) that will not affect play.
VG+ A few visible imperfections. These may include sleeve scuffs, light scratches, or other superficial marks.
VG Same imperfections found on VG+ records but in slightly greater numbers. Records graded VG and above will typically not have any scratches that are deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
VG- A number of visible imperfections; the presence of a considerable number of light scratches will force a VG- grade, as will the presence of significant isolated defects such as scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
G Pervasive imperfections of varying degrees including both light scratches and scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. G+ and G- are used to indicate stronger and weaker copies within this range.

All records are visually graded by our experienced staff, using a bright lamp and a well-calibrated turntable.
