Is this some sort of lost treasure for punk collectors or something?

If I understand the posting, it's a vanity pressing of an obscure group that never gained any popularity. Seems an awful lot of money for such a record.

The record needs cleaned too. A zoom showed a lot of dust covering it.

Regardless of the price, it's an obscure punk record so could be $5 or $5K, the published Q&A at the bottom is what's more interesting I think.

::: The interesting I found was:

too many punk young fellows in 1976, became rich somewhere between Sid's death and Justin Bieber, rich enough to pay such amount of money for a punk record? I thought they hated establishment

No kidding. Getting asked to end early is not uncommon and neither is posting your reply concerning this, but the further discussion about scans and selling to the guy who writes a book is just plain bizarre. I'm guessing he didn't realize that box was checked when he responded. Or maybe he used it as proof of its mega rare status and desirability. If I was selling a $3K record I probably wouldn't know what to do with myself either.

It can also get the poser 1000 idiot emails from ebay.

It's twice as much fun as selling a $1500 record, and that's easy,
you just buy yourself a bottle of scotch with a label on it and sit back.
Of course on the bay first you have to wait for the guy to back out or bitch and moan that there's some gnat crap on the B side, but that's another story.
