The term is essentially meanningless, many museums display bits and pieces that would
best be described as junk if they didn't haappen to be Greek, or Roman or Babylonian,
cheek by jowl with artifacts in perfect condition. Of course the seller wants you to think
the latter, but It Ain't Necessarily So.... Caveat emptor, as Cary sez. ESPECIALLY on

So what exactly does "museum quality" mean? To me, it indicates that it is in the best possible condition, N-, if anything. I guess I was wrong. Here is this seller's opinion of what "museum quality" is.
THIS RARE RECORD LABEL IS WHAT I CALL "MUSEUM QUALITY" WHICH MEANS; IT IS WORTHY OF BEING PART OF A
KNOWLEDGEABLE COLLECTOR WHO CAN APPRECIATE IT'S VALUE AS AN EXTREMELY RARE RECORD ; OR CAN BE DISPLAYED FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO VIEW BECAUSE OF IT'S RARITY .
Guess that means just about any 78 can be referred to as a museum piece, n'est-ce-pas?
So, the description of this rare Bluebird release didn't really tell anything about the condition of the record, which sold for $175, only that it is a REAL NICE RECORD IN GREAT SHAPE
