It would seem, looking at the current Nauction # 57, that there are still
quite a number of folks who collect operatic 78s.  The cover item is exactly

that's the all-time high for a minimum bid or not, but apparently folks who
didn't choke on a record for $7.00 in 1907 are still not choking on records
for $25 grand today.  And there's 20+ more pages of more of the same kind of

The  very first 78rpm collectors collected early recordings of the great
opera singers.
As early as the 1930s, HMV added an 'Historic' section to their catalogue to
cater to these collectors.

Now, it seems, we are a dying breed.
Let me know if YOU collect operatic 78s, like me.
