I've never personally had any of these, and thanks for sharing.
I have also never really looked at them.
There is many, and come to think of it I would not mind seeing them.

That does seem like a pretty incredible price, these days, and I love what they did with it

I used the link he provided and was able to see.


yes. either and or both.
I guess his is a flexi while the postcards have an image??

Unless it's not allowed.
I can't imagine them being legit but it is hard for me to see them as much of a threat in today's market
But them I am only me!

Mike (hi, by the way) I would be surprised if they weren't allowed here. They are novelty items which i really doubt they can be played on a deck. In fact they write "Gramofon" on them and the grooves are really close to the spindle hole, so much that the arm is lifted when put to play. I don't know if they are to be played on a gramophone, but the rpm are 45...
A second problem is that they are plain postcards or printed paper which have a transparent film attached / glued over, with the obvious curvy bending making it impossible to be played even if the grooves were on the correct distance from the centre.
I have 7 of them, (POLSKA POCZTOWKA DZWIEKOWA) most made by Beat Generation Scene BGS having the band as "The Hawkwind", with each having one song (Dealing with the Devil, Born to go, The silver machine, Wind of change, Born to go (a different artwork), Hurry on Sundown, The reason is?, Ghost Dance), there of them cite that they are a limited edition of 100...
They were one of the very first "exotic" items when i was starting my Hawkweed collection. Nowadays I keep them only for a trade...

excellent- I wondered if you had an "angle" and also how flexis fit into the bigger picture.

Hello Opa-Loka

here is the one I see over and over (link below) and it is not double sided.
somewhat funny that the seller makes a point to say "this is not CD sound" HAHAHA

The seller has to have some kinda safety net. Otherwise some idiot scam merchant will get it & then complain about the sound quality & expect a full refund inc p&p.

anyone know what the little twizzle is on right hand side of 2nd photo ?
The flexi design itself resembles the front page of HW log book.

Looks like a cigarette lighter, for size comparison probably....
