Just found this one on NPR. Good stuff. The Most Expensive Record Never Sold Discogs, Billy Yeager And The $18,000 Hoax That Almost Was This is the story of a hoax that almost was. Its motivating force was a hunger for fame, or infamy, or whispered legend in a particularly American sort of way. It begins on a beach somewhere in south Florida. Earlier this year, a test pressing (literally a test, for labels and artists to hear before ordering a full run of new record) of an unknown musician's record was put up for sale on Discogs, a resale website popular with collectors. Two days later that test pressing almost became, at a price tag of $18,000, the most expensive album ever sold on the site, besting a record set last year for a sublimely rare Prince piece which sold for $15,000. http://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2017/03/23/521216130/the-most-expensive-record-never-sold
