Post by Oceangoer1 »

I came across a few 78's in Hebrew today! I thought they were very interesting! Here is my favorite of the haul today

Great haul. Jewish and Hebrew records are very collectible.

I was told that Pathé had a brown wax series of cylinders in the 29,000 block. Do we know approx what date that would be? Supposedly, they were in Hebrew/Yiddish.

Thanks.

Rafael Ruwinsky, Chief Cantor in Bucharest 1926 who happily survived the Holocaust. This was a lucky find in a job lot of records at a flea market. Collectors of cantorial records from all over the world keep asking me to sell it, but where would I find another?

That's the point with so special records, exactly the ones you're keeping only by their rarity... To sell or not to sell? That is the question...
I have several records that I only keep for their rarity, not being the ones I play when I want 78rpm music, you may understand. I'm always thinking about selling them, but in the end, I am always repenting.
To be continued until there is no market for them and they eventually loose their value...
What to do?
Other times I think : sell them while there's still interest on them and you can earn some money!
Other times I think of donating them to an institution...

When my father died, we donated his collection of over 2000 operatic 78s, a considerable number of vinyl transcriptions and some books and catalogues to the King's College London music archive. They would have liked to take the Expert as well - but that was not on offer.

Very interesting pictures Curt. Thank you for posting them. Now can anyone translate what is written on the card?
