I have some Records that have a sticker saying: "Sample Record. This record is not for sale. bal bla bla bla....."
They are actuallly rceords sent directly from DECCA to the EMI representant in Peru.
Are this sample records the same as Promotional Records or at least worth the same?

Thanks

Probably not. Stickers, stamps etc. are Designated Promos. Stock copies marked as promotional copies. In most cases they are worth the same as a stock copy and some collectors would consider the stamp or sticker to be a flaw. By the 80s however most companies were no longer prodcuing true promo copies and these may be the only example of any kind of promo outside of radio mix singles and might bring a slightly higher price to a collector of a specific artist of the period.
