By chance, I had someone contact me about a stash of 78s found as they were cleaning out an elderly relative's house. I said I could take a look and see if anything may be collectible. This morning, he drove the records over to my house but unfortunately the original carrying case had been sitting in an inch of water for years. (They were basically Crosbys and newer Hawaiian)
After explaining that the damage made these all but worthless and unplayable, I saw a 45 stuffed in a folder which resided well above any water threat.
Sorely out of place, it was a decent copy of early Orioles on Jubilee. Not bad.
