    I have some Pink Floyd singles that I would like to find the value of and possibly sell, these are from late 1960s, where would be a good place to start?

    Try an ad in the Record Collector mag or on ebay. What have you got?

    Believe it or not, I did have in my posession for a few days this week, a genuine original copy of the demo LP, Jokers Wild. Not mine, and it's gone back to its owner. Valuable, I gather.....

    This may be :boring: but I believe these are the early Floyd singles :-

    Arnold layne/candy and a currant bun
    See Emily Play/scarcrow
    Apples and Oranges/paintbox
    It would be so nice/julia dream
    Point me at the sky/careful with that axe Eugene

    (I have all these on the 'Early Singles' CD as part of the 'shine on' boxed set :D )

    value wise, it'll depend on the condidtion and the sleeves you have. The first 2 were the biggies (I think they reached 14 and 5 respectively, but I'm not sure without looking this up). The others will be more rare.

    Purely guessing I'd say £10-£15 each for Arnold and Emily, the rest maybe £20+ each. I'm probably way off the mark.

    the thing to do would be to make a note of the catalogue numbers and do some digging as they may be special pressings. There's a very good market for Floyd singles, but I personally wouldn't sell them. - The only Floyd 7" I have is 'When the Tigers Broke Free' with the gatefild sleeve. (bought 2nd hand for £7) :D

    They are in the loft so I will have to check exactly what, I am sure one is Arnold Layne or See Emily play, also Careful with that Axe Eugene I think, I also have a Syd Barret solo album, I need to get them down, I suppose ebay could be worth a check for current values, thanks anyway.

    Ten years ago I used to be a record dealer. Then, the Joker's Wild album would have fetched £800 - £1000. The ordinary singles were around the £30 mark - wouldn't expect them to have shot up in value since.

    Sounds like a case of e-bay frenzy for the Arnold Layne 7" - unless it's a demo version in a promo sleeve. That'll be more like £300.

    Don't forget that condition is the key. You'll only realise these prices if they're in mint (unlikely) or excellent condition.

    :hiya: My advice would be go here http://www.pinkfloyd-co.com/mast_idx.html

    Go on to the forum, I am sure you will get much better advice from these people

    Use AV forums for AV equipment,

    Use one of the biggest independant Pink Floyd fan clubs for Pink Floyd for Pink Floyd information,

    After you have decieded on a value let me I might be interested to add them to my collection.
