You mean the discs for testing and calibrating players?

If you're unsure of market price, I should maybe warn you that they fetch quite high prices - three recent eBay sales:

GGV1069 - £520 (US$ 650)
GGV1008 - US$ 691
F4 - US$ 300

A GGV1008 has just appeared on eBay by the way (not my auction!) - already attracting bids even though it's got a nasty crack:

Shocked the cracked one is only at 300 now, it should end even in that condition for no less than 600. Wouldn't be surprised if it went over
600 even cracked as that crack is on the edge and LDs play from the inside out.

You're welcome, I thought he had one left and he did.
These have skyrocketed over the past 3 years, ever since they stopped offering them from Pioneer and another source about 5 years ago.

Sorry I don't know anybody who has them, they are not easy to find as I'm sure you already know.

I saw one had just gone for over US$1,000...

Just being nosey, but I'm curious as to why you want these... are you running a business recalibrating LaserDisc players - or are they just to recalibrate your own - or do you just like owning the discs as collectors' items?
