RE: What is the most you have ever paid for an LP?

I paid $150.00 for a Sheffield Lab Lincoln Mayorga & Distinguished Colleagues on Ebay which is supposed to be the first Direct to disc recording. I have a direct to disc recording that pre dates the Sheffield which is the HiFi/Stereo Review Stereo Test Record. It was made in 1963. On the back of the record jacket it states.

DIRECT-DISC RECORDING. Since the introduction of magnetic tape, recordings have been made on tape, then transferred to discs. To eliminate the tape step is to reduce distortion, widen frequency response, eliminate tape hiss, improve transient response, and increase signal-to-noise ratio. Heretofore, only a few recording engineers have heard the fantastic fidelity that is possible by recording directly on the master disc. Now, for the first time on a commercially available recording, this record includes a demonstration of direct-disc recording.
