Please keep us posted as to how they play.
A few months ago I bought the DiscoVision version of Animal House
off ebay for a shipped total of about $3. Primarily because I had never had one, and I wanted to see what a late '70s transfer looked like.
It arrived VERY scratched, the glue holding the jacket together was barely doing its job. and, by the way, it filled my theater with cigarette smoke with surprising speed.
Since there was no way the disc was touching my CLD-704, I used my retired Panasonic LX-600. Side 1 was a soft mess with jumping white lines everywhere. Side 2 refused to play at all.
I threw it in the trash OUTSIDE IN THE ALLEY, and didn't pursue a $3 refund (it was described as being in "very good" condition)
