1950's LP Cities Service 50th Anniversary-Jubilee Marches

Vinyl Near Mint Jacket Near Mint Sleeve Original Label RCA Custom Records Special Pressing Year 1950's Original Yes

While the marches are fine pieces, this is a rare piece for a petroliana collector in general, or a Cities Service collector in particular.

Record and jacket are in superb condition and would make a fine addition to any collection.

A rare piece that you can enjoy for years to come.

Record condition is superb and the fidelity is true to life.

My records are graded by traditional Goldmine standards. I don't sell records with a grading of less than VG unless it is obscenely rare in any condition.

Most of my records will grade from VG+ to M- with a conservative approach that dictates a borderline record will receive a lower grading rather than a "push" higher.

M- / Visually without blemishes save for very minor lines or scuffs that are most likely attributable to sleeve marks, Sonically with no or virtually no sound other than that of the recording itself (no pops,crackles, ticks or hissing).

VG+ / More obvious visual signs of imperfections, pressing imperfections (bubbles for example, that do not impact play quality) light "skid" marks that can be seen but not "felt", some perceptable noise between tracks or at lead in, general sound quality during play is uncompromised.

VG / Recording is visually and sonically of high quality, without skips or excessive noise during playback.

In some extreme instances I will submit a grading of R.M.F. (which means Rare Musical Find) to advise it is something special to consider.

Vinyl and Jackets are graded within these same general guidlines.

All specific areas of concern are noted to the best of my ability.

I try to insure all records are play graded (which I believe most collectors rate the higher priority) by spot checking areas that may be questionable and generally checking for quality overall.

I may make errors in grading and if it should occur I will make every effort to ensure you are completely satisfied with your purchase.

I ship worldwide, however those outside of the United States and Canada must

I will gladly combine winnings to save on shipping costs for you.

Personal Checks require approximately two (2) days after deposit to clear.

I invite questions and will respond in a timely manner.

Insurance is not included although highly recommended to avoid debates that may occur without it (mis-directed package, damaged item, etc.)

Shipping to the 50 states is a flat $4.50 USPS Media Mail rate by estimating this item between 1-2 pounds. Rates increase as package weight increases. This includes custom packaging for the safe delivery of your item.

I usually ship within two (2) days after payment is received.

Shipping elsew will be quoted at the end of the auction and will be destination dependant. Most overseas shippments will be done via Airmail Letter Post which is cost effective and a relatively fast delivery turnaround.
