RE: What is the state of the original pressing Classical LP market ?

In addition to the good points made by other posters, I can add that the appearance of high quality vinyl reissues of many of the classical LPs that are most in demand by collectors has indeed caused the value of many of the originals to fall, imo.
Also, while the best of the RCA LSC, London blueback and Mercury LPs you mention are still in demand, classical collectors have long since moved further afield, even to mono LPs, and especially to European label issues, as those were often produced in much smaller quantities than American ones in the postwar era, and as with most collectibles, rarity is the main thing that drives value.
