I'm a 78rpm record collector so know how to pack 78s properly for shipping. I can send up to 8 10" records media mail for $4 in the USA. For sets it's $4 for a set, $5 for 2 sets, $6 for 3 sets. Will calculate if you buy more but will combine on postage. International please inquire. Thanks for looking.
Condition for 78rpm records:

E+ = New stock, never been opened or played

E = Bright and shiny, no scuffs or scratches. Looks new but has been played

E- = Still bright and shiny, shows some signs of handling but nothing that would create extra noise during playback.

VG++ = Showing a little more sign of wear, maybe a few light scuffs or minor scratches but nothing that would create extra noise during playback.

VG+ = Shows signs of wear with some scuffs and minor scratches. Nothing that would create noticeable loud ticks during playback but will play with some background noise.

VG = This is a well played record with minor scuffs, scratches and maybe even some graying in areas. However, the record still plays well and can be enjoyed.

VG - = Begins to have scratches that make the record quite noisy on playback and have noticeable ticks from scratches.

G = This is a record that, for some, can still be enjoyed until a better copy comes along. Lots of scratches, may even make the record skip. Possible hair line fracture. Likely this grade of record will only be listed if it’s a rarer record where the content or label is highly collectable.

P = This record is either broken or otherwise unplayable. Again, this would only be listed if it were very rare and interesting for historical information.
