There was an interesting detail on this Short Tell Me LP. The label had the shorter text "Made In England" instead of the long "Made In England By The DECCA Record Company" All known short TM LP's have this longer version. But here we have now a copy with the short Made In England text. Not seen before.
I was a few seconds too slow to get this new found version into my own collection, someone else did press enter before me. The price was low as well, just 500 USD.

How did the story end:
Well, copy paste from IORR site:
"Arrived today - matrix for side 2 is 6272-3A... I'm already trying to get my bucks back via PayPal but (LOL) I had to pay EUR 94,02 to get the record from customs. I'll never get these expenses back anyway and I guess I've learned another lesson ;-)
btw - this guy's strange - he's also offering me (a pic and a letter came with the parcel) a copy of the UK Promotional Album for $ 1.500,- (which way to cheap by the way) - still sealed, UK DECCA, order-number RS-3006 - do I have to say more? I didn't check but in my memories it's the order-number of the Australian LP which is worth a little bit less."
WHAT A JOB from the seller. He clearly stated that the matrix was 6272-1A and then he sends one with -3A that has the long Tell Me. Then he is trying o sell a cheap Australian Promo Album as a "UK" one as well
Well well, all kind of dudes are out there on the bay.....
So, still no Made In England on short Tell Me records
What a rip off, fuck that guy. Also the ad on ebay is a bit strange as it shoms only small pictures of the LP as well as the cover. A LP like this should have big pic`s of everything, cover, inner sleeve, and LP center`s with close up`s of the Matrix numbers. You don`t see the real LP "every day" on ebay. I`m very lucky to have mine.

I just joined your site today. I must say Im impressed with what Ive seen. I'm in The States and trying to collect all the Unboxed Decca mono Lps with grooved labels with earliest pressings as possible. I only want copies that play Near mint or better and I expect to pay for them as such. Anybody have any extras that you might part with please advise.
Lastly--the 2:52 Tell Me LP interest me a great deal. How often have these been showing up on ebay? What would you consider to be the correct price range for NM copies? Thanks.

Hello thebeatles67. Nice to get more people in here. We are not that may posting here but would say that we are keeping a rather high standard here. We are a few guys that have really got into the grooves so to speak.
The short Tell Me is up on the e-bay every now and then. Maybe 5-10 copies on a yearly basis. Prices are everything from 250 pounds up above 1000 pounds, depending on the quality and how many bidders that have decided to get the one up for grabs
The last two three ones have been in the 5-800 pounds range. This is interesting as if you go back three-four years, it sold regurlarly for 1000+ pounds
It is still missing from my collectons as well.... and it is on my shopping list.

Thanks for the reply jan. Yes, your info on the Decca pages was of great help to me. Nicely done and lots of effort on your part and much appreciated.
I've seen the Stones in person a few times since 1975. My most memorable show was North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on June 22, 1978 in a very very small building (convention center) that held only 2000 fans. I have some excellent photos from that show if anyone would like to see them taken from 8th row dead center.
Again thanks to all on this forum --I look forward to contributing.
