Top 10 Most Expensive Mispressed Records Ever Sold On Discogs

This past week Columbia Records issued a notice that some of the records from the new vinyl release of Beyonce’s Lemonade were mispressed with music from Canadian punk rock band ZEX. Mispressed records usually occur in the pressing plant when the wrong stampers are used when making an album. These errors are generally caught by quality control before making it out of the plant. In some cases though, the error is not noticed until the records are in the hands of collectors. These problematic pressings are an inconvenience for some and a collectible curiosity for others!
