Just recently I bought a massive collection of 60's and 70's LPs...some are in surprisingly immaculate condition, and some are not, but the original owner (a well-respected Australian vinyl hoarder) was a fastidious collector of the styles he loved - 60's beat/punk/garage, British invasion well-knowns [Beatles/Hollies/Dave Clark 5/Gerry & The Pacemakers/Zombies/Troggs/Rolling Stones, etc..], 70's West Coast sounds, pop-psych and he'd obviously forraged far and wide since there's a flurry of unique South American, New Zealand,Taiwanese, South African, Japanese releases amongst them all.
Here then, is one of the records from his collection:
ARTISTS: The BEATLES -
TITLE: "ANTHOLOGY 3".
FORMAT: …DOUBLE CD…
LABEL: APPLE/CAPITOL .
CATALOGUE #: C2 7243 8 53136 2 2 .
DATE OF RELEASE: 28th October 1996 .
PRESSED IN: USA .
ORIGINAL FIRST PRESSING?: Yes, it is...still in its long display box...CD's in original thick 'jewelcase' with original white trays and white inner divider...CD case itself is still sealed...still has solid metal keyring (sealed in plastic still)...
BOX: ( VG++ )...base of box, where CD case is housed, is near mint, but above that area it's been slightly crushed - most evident in the box's top left corner - but the box also has creases on the upper edges and sides as well...
CD CASE: ( MINT )...
CD's THEMSELVES: (still sealed, thus both are MINT )...If you have any concerns about the accuracy of my gradings, please check my feedback for the odd nice comment from some satisfied folk out there.... (and hopefully you may be able to join their ranks).
Thanks for considering this item...Cheers, Jules.

Don’t worry - I'll pack anything you buy VERY CAREFULLY to make sure it arrives in EXACTLY the condition it left here. More specifically, in the way I'd like to receive parcels myself.
VINYL: All LPs come packaged carefully in solid corrugated card packaging designed specifically for LPs, plus the LPs are housed in clear plastic sleeves. The record itself is ALWAYS removed from cover ( except for SEALED LPs) for shipping to prevent seam splitting, and placed alongside the LP cover (inside its own inner sleeve, OR in an extra sleeve to keep in secure) within the clear plastic sleeve, which is then sealed. Likewise 7" singles/EPs are packaged the same way too - well protected.
POSTERS: All posters are rolled within outer protective paper that extends well beyond the actual length of the poster to avoid any crushing of the ends, and then packed in a very sturdy solid-card mailing tube - packed carefully to allow no room for any movement of the item inside.
WE MAIL OUT AT LEAST THREE TIMES A WEEK.
