Some are on Ebay for Pounds Sterling 3,00 and NO bids.
Since a dealer* pays about 30% of the "value" you are lucky if you get Pounds Sterling 1,00 each. Thevalue of Elvis discs dropped anormously the last couple of years. A friend of mine buys discs that were offered for sale for euro 150 or more for only euro 15 to euro 40.
(Pounds Sterling 1,00 is about euro 1,50)

* a dealer in general pays taxes, has to rent a shop, pay staff.

Yes, Colin that's what I woukld expect to see them being retailed at.

A delaer will offer about £10 per disc, tcb1's friend has 6 discs so that gets rounded down to £50.

Being as those prices are for mint and the condition is only fair it'll probably be a little bit of "tut tut.. bit worn are these" from the dealer and you'll get a "Best I can do for these is....well see..., thing is see, people think these are rare when they're actually quite common, it's the mint condition ones that are rare. collectors have this fairish quality ten times over, and I'm being kind really when I refer to these as fair, so there's little demand but I'll save you a trip to the dump and I'm a charitable guy so here's £30 for them"

Discs without covers are not really that attractive to collectors so i would imagine the price for these would be very low.

Best off avoiding dealers and selling them yourself
