I know it's a great cheek on my part - but would you consider getting them for me and posting to the UK ?
I would obviously go and look myself if they were more easy to reach but that just not practicable.
If you were prepared to do me this great favour I would ask you to look at the discs to see if they are in one piece - that is Not Cracked or the Two Halves Seperating and to see if the surface is clean and shiny and not Scuffed or Scratched from Poor Handling.
This is basically just the same as looking at an LP to see if it is damaged before buying it.
So far as "Goodness" goes - unfortunately it's just impossible to tell from looking at any LD if it will play OK or not - you really have to try to play it to see if its any good or not - so I would not complain or come back to you if they turned out to be "Rubbish" - it's just the chance you take with buying second hand Laserdiscs.
The great thing about the London Second Hand Dealers was that you could take a disc back if it was useless, but with Charity Shop it's the luck of the draw.
Most discs from the 1990's are pretty good although some duff pressing make it impossible to find good copies, early laserdiscs tend to have more problems with picture dropouts and will only have analogue sound tracks, later PAL discs have additional Digital sound tracks or Dolby ProLogic Surround while NTSC discs can also be AC-3 which is 5.1 Dolby Digital or 5.1 dts which is possibly the best surround sound that was available.
If you were able to do this for me I will of course repay you for your costs + postage + your time.
Let me know what think ?
I'm going past the shop today and I will have another look at them. From memory some discs had a bit of scuffing in.
