Beethoven, Symphonie NR.5 (1963/1965)
DESCRIPTION: I bought it at a local sale. It is in beautiful condition. It features Herbert von Karajan leading the Berliner Philharmoniker playing Beethoven's 5th Symphony as well as the Overtures Fidelio (op. 72b) and Leonore III (op. 72a). It is a Deutsche Gramaphone/PolyGram recording. The numbers on the inner ring are "DG 4102". The same is printed on the rear cover. It was printed in Hamburg for the Korean market and has Korean subtitles on all the key information on the insert. NOTE: the liner notes are ENTIRELY in KOREAN.
SHIPPING FEES (US: includes AK, HI, Guam, PR & APO/FPO): for THIS ITEM is based USPS rates for your ZIP CODE (plus a small fee for material and related costs, see below)
1st Class (or MEDIA*, depending on weight) ships in a bubble mailer, OR
PRIORITY (US), will be bubble wrapped & boxed so unless they run it over it'll be in the condition listed, GUARANTEED!
*HAWAII, ALASKA & US Protectorates: Media Mail (and Parcel Post) can take up to a month or longer (especially during Christmas season). DO NOT USE MEDIA/PARCEL POST if you want it in a timely manner)!
INSURANCE (US ONLY~ INCLUDED if over $30.00): I CAN NOT be responsible for USPS damage or losses. While I've had less than 1% report problems, they do occur. DUE TO eBay's changes in shipping fees and lax controls I am forced to include insurance to protect against loss and theft by scam artists being allowed on ebaY. The overall cost is about the same as I previously charged and your item will carry full protection by USPS.
PLEASE READ THIS: Sometimes I get questions (&/or Lower DSR ratings) about MY cost of shipping &/or Shipping Speed, so . SHIPPING SPEED should be based on how fast the seller gets it to the shipper NOT how fast the shipper gets it to you. The COST of SHIPPING includes more than just postage. It includes a small handling fee that gets you such things as SPEEDY processing (usually w/in 12-24 hours of payment, see my feedback), padded mailers, boxes &/or extra protective packaging, not to mention the costs of mailing items (tape, printer ink, etc., ...coffee & aspirin for the rare pain in the ... that keeps me up nights... ).That last small print part is sarcasm for those ebaY staff who can't recognize it.
IF you want FREE (?) or CHEAP SHIPPING please DON'T BUY FROM ME (I could use cheap manila envelopes, stick stamps on it and drop it in the mail but unfortunately could not offer insurance with that option.)! My fees are in line with Amazon and other reasonable shippers and for the SPEEDY SERVICE you get I believe its worth it. If you disagree please shop with cheaper (but not necessarily better sellers). REMEMBER nothing is truly FREE (Amazon's FREE shipping can take several weeks to arrive SO it costs you time and may come poorly packaged. I know I've used it).
Thanks for your understanding. Jim
