I frequently make that mistake, especially when I seem to have Money but actually have no Cash.

Nice stuff Steve. Didn't you say you have a gold top Federal What's it look like?
I've also been looking for an incredibly cheap Royals for you. No luck so far


Thanks for making the effort on The Royals mate Wink
I have been lucky enough to aquire the silver top of this single too and have been too frightened to remove the sticker for fear of damaging the label.

I don't mind those stickers and such so much but I can see how they annoy people. Usually with paper ones like those numbers for platter paks and that sticker you have that looks like paper just spit on your finger and rub it round till it turns to mush then it wipes right off. but if you don't have the nerve look at it as a provenance.
I even like some tags. I kept this heartbeats rather than a similar condition one because I like to think Frenchie & the Mighty Crowns should be remembered somewhere.

Its hard to screw up with a voice like Shep's.
You don't have the Gee tracks they seem to be the easiest to find over here?

What I would like to know is what the Mighty Crowns sounded like?
Was Frenchie the lead or did he sing a mean bass.
Or were they a Boppin Gang and did he ever shiv someone in a stand.
I found another record of his where not only did he profess allegiance to
the Crowns but to his girl Kate. I love this stuff and I wonder where they are now.

Not trying to dis your record but that looks like a 70s boot; most original Federal gold-tops I've seen show the logo much higher up on the label and very close to the edge. Does the deadwax have a lightly etched "CS" after the heavy matrix #?

Sorry if Im sort of hijacking the thread, but I also have a copy of Hull 720 and would like to know...Hey, Im the who started this thread!!! Very Happy What I would like to know is when this red labelled Hull 45 was released. The first pressing was on a black label and it was later picked up by Rama for national distribution. But where does this red label release fit in? Before or after the Rama release? Question

According to my 2006 Goldmine price guide Hull 720 was both Red & Black:
Hull 720 Red 1957 $20-$40-$80
Hull 720 Black 1957 $62.50-$125-$250
Also The Dominoes:
Info as follows:Federal 12022 Gold top,no "AA" on label;though this version has been counterfeited,there are legitimate copies without" AA" on the label;the best way to confirmit is to,if possible,compare it to an "AA" pressing,as they will be exactly the same in every way except for the absence of the "AA".
